AUBURN MAY SEE MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM RISE FROM FORMER UTILITY BUILDING

A crum­bling util­ity build­ing in Auburn that’s been vacant for half a cen­tury find a new life… as a museum.

A devel­oper wants to restore Auburn’s 80-year-old for­mer elec­tric util­ity build­ing and turn it into a museum dis­play­ing 200 motor­cy­cles.

The devel­oper says he hopes to have the build­ing ren­o­vated and open by 2015.

Just last sum­mer, Auburn’s Mayor said he wanted to demol­ish the 4,620-square-foot build­ing as it had become a lia­bil­ity the city no longer was inter­ested in deal­ing with after a failed 13-year search for developers.
