OTR resident, Derek Bauman has hit the limit with his frustration on the lack of progress on the Cincinnati Streetcar. He started contacting people Tuesday hoping to gather supporters in hopes of prodding Council into some kind of action. Derek feels the streetcar is Cincinnati's moonshot and its not unreasonable to think that it could be running by the All-Star game in 2015.
Having said that, it's high time for a 'buck stops here' moment over at 801 Plum.— D Monet (@derekbauman) January 23, 2013
This is the email I've sent,
Dear Mayor Mallory, Council Members and City Manager Milton Dohoney,
After two hotly contested elections aimed at killing the streetcar and an election that saw an injection of younger more progressive people into city council I feel the citizens of Cincinnati have made it clear they want a streetcar built. We are losing patience with the foot dragging, excuses and lack of progress in the streetcars implementation. John Cranley calls the streetcar delays "embarrassing" and he is 100% correct. Surely the infrastructure for a streetcar could be completed in two and a half years if only someone would step up and show a little more leadership.
Major League Baseball has announced they will host their All-Star Game and surrounding festivities at Great American Ballpark in 2015. What a show Cincinnati could provide if along with all the other marvelous things happening right now Cincinnati also had a fully operating streetcar.
This is Cincinnati's moonshot, please don't waste this unique opportunity to showcase Cincinnati to the world.
If you too are frustrated about the lack of progress on the Cincinnati Streetcar please, email city officials and urge them to set a deadline and get it built.
