Cranley Encourages Voter Referendum on Streetcar
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- There are several new developments on Cincinnati's streetcar.
After first saying the conversation was over, mayor-elect John Cranley changes gears Thursday saying he would welcome a voter referendum on the project.
Cranley says he wants to end construction as soon as possible. The streetcar survived two previous ballot issues that would have blocked it in 2009 and 2011.
Meantime current mayor Mark Mallory released a letter Thursday confirming the money from the federal government for the streetcar will go to other states if it's cancelled.
Cranley wanted to use it on other projects in the city.
Supporters host a Town Hall meeting Thursday in an effort to keep the streetcar on track. It's at 7p.m. at the Mercantile Library downtown on Walnut between fourth and fifth.
