A resolution requesting the Mayor to consider acquiring and renovating the historic Union Station train shed located in the Gulch area in downtown Nashville.

SECTION 1. That the Metropolitan County Council hereby goes on record as requesting the Mayor to consider acquiring and renovating the historic Union Station train shed in the Gulch area of downtown Nashville.
SECTION 2. That the Metropolitan Clerk is directed to send a certified copy of this Resolution to the Mayor.
