CINCINNATI (AP) — Supporters of the beleaguered Cincinnati streetcar project want to put it to the voters.
Members of "We Believe in Cincinnati" are trying to keep the newly elected mayor and city council from killing for $133 million downtown project. The group wants to gather enough signatures to get a referendum on the ballot in the spring.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1cvH0zU ) reports that the group is calling a news conference Monday morning on the steps of city hall to announce details of the plan.
Last week, city council halted spending on the streetcar project while an analysis is done on whether it would be more expensive to finish construction or stop the project in its tracks.
New Mayor John Cranley opposes the project, which was begun under the previous administration.
