I encourage everyone to check out my friend Randy Simes blog: Urban Cincy. In his latest post he sheds light on the opposition these three organizations intend to bring against the street cars. If you can, please take the time to visit his site and send a short email to these organizations, don't let them stand in the way of increasing progress and increasing economic prosperity of the city of Cincinnati and it's surrounding areas!
To contact the Green Party, NAACP and Greene Township officials, check out the Urban Cincy article: Urban Cincy
In other cities, building a streetcar line has been an effective way to increase investment and development in their urban cores.
Portland has seen $2.8 billion in added value to the city. Tampa’s streetcar line stimulated $1.1 billion of development. Little Rock’s route brought $700 million into the city. Even Kenosha, Wisconsin, a metro area with1.9 million fewer residents than Cincinnati’s metro, has seen $175 million in added value along their streetcar line
The above statement and other facts about why the streetcar should be supported can be found by visiting www.cincystreetcar.com.
Don't let rail transit slip away from Cincinnati again, let your voice be heard!
