multiple blows this week, Cincinnati's streetcar project is knocking at death's door. County Commissioner Todd Portune wasted no time grieving before before making a play for its funding.
At Wednesday morning’s Hamilton County commission meeting, Portune suggested that the county seek part of the money to begin building long-planned decks over Fort Washington Way. The decks, which would connect Second and Third Streets, could be used for commercial development or as green space.
That's just what we need while struggling to cover basic services: more non-revenue-producing space that costs money to water, landscape, mow and patrol. Let the dead rest in peace.
