WCPO reports Mayor Mallory will be meeting with President Obama this morning to discuss the stimulus package. One of the stimulus priorities for the Mayor is the Cincinnati Streetcar.
With an economic impact ratio of 14.1 to 1, the Streetcar represents exactly the type project that allows the City to get the most ‘bang for its buck’ out of the stimulus.
In the short term it will employ engineers, designers, and construction workers. In the long term it will lead to compact development in the core of the City which will help reduce our dependence on imported oil by creating walkable communities served by public transportation.
