Ground breaking or cover up?

What did the media event at Memorial Hall today mean?  Is this the start of a big public works project, or is this just posturing from the City?

We are not sure, but this photo shows that one half hour after the big ground-breaking event, the City had filled the holes with asphalt.



  1. What kind of "groundbreaking" is this? I turn over more materials cleaning my kitchen.

  2. ^A groundbreaking is a ceremony. Most adults are familiar with how this works. I.E. The Banks where they just shoveled dirt before work began. Here, they held the ceremony and the real work will begin where the red and yellow markings are.

    Cover up? Wow, you guys are really grasping at anything these days aren't you after losing at the polls numerous times. Of course they filled in the holes with asphalt, the street was still open that day - why have pot holes?

    Like it or not, here comes the streetcar. Move out to Anderson with your lawyer buddy if you don't like it.

  3. I already live in Anderson. I fled the high tax high crime City of Cincinnati years ago.

  4. The difference of course is that The Banks had their funding plan in place and was ready to actually start construction.

    Tell us Gordon - has one single construction contract been signed by the City?

  5. The streetcar has funding in place and started construction on Elm yesterday. Get over it, you lost the battle and the voters had their say twice.

    If we just ignore the huge multi-million funding gap then it doesn't exist.

  7. Gordon, the streetcar has SOME of its funding in place. It still hasn't accounted for their $20 million or more shortfall in utilities replacement.
