The historic train station in Kennebunk, built in 1873 and now home to Dietz Associates, could soon get a new neighbor — an actual train stop for the Amtrak Downeaster. Under plans slated to be unveiled to selectmen by the town’s economic development committee May 22, a $1.1 million train platform would be built between the old depot and the Summer Street bridge, along with 20 parking spots and a 400-square-foot bathroom facility. The town faces a July 1 deadline to present a project timeline to the Maine Department of Transportation assuring completion of the site by December 2019, or risk losing $800,000 in grant funding.
