I see my former-home-city is still on its ridiculous street-car quest.
Mayor Michael Coleman last week announced his appointments to the city’s Streetcar Steering Committee which will determine whether a plan for constructing and operating streetcars in downtown Columbus is achievable given existing federal, state and local resources.
“Every expert we’ve spoken with has advised that we will see a positive return on this investment, up to 6-to-1, and people who are engaged in taking our downtown into the 21st century tell me that streetcars are a great way to reconnect neighborhoods, build up our convention business, help people get around the city and address the parking issues,” Coleman said.
Ahhh, yes. Nothing says 21st Century like …. streetcars.
