Northern Kentucky City Hoping To Revitalize Old Military District

FORT THOMAS, Ky. (AP) - The historic Midway district in Fort Thomas may be getting a much-needed facelift.

City officials are hoping the National Park Service will allow them to incorporate some of the buildings in the downtown area in the city's national historic district.

City staff next month will make a recommendation to Fort Thomas City Council on how to proceed with $2 million worth of proposed streetscape improvements during the next three years.

Among the plans are a park with statues of veterans.

The Midway district sprung up around Fort Thomas in the 1880s, with businesses aimed at the soldiers who populated the Army post.

In recent years, the many of the buildings in the district has sat empty, while the central business district has seen investors and beautification projects.
