Two things happened this past week in Cincinnati. First council approved a controversial plan to build a street car in the city. I’m not going into the good and bad of it per se but once again Cincinnati tries to follow plans of other cities to promote tourism while never seeming to lead the way. One reason it is controversial is because opponents say that fares will not cover the cost to operate the streetcar and the city will continually have to pony up money to keep it in business.
Secondly, they decided to double the parking rates in downtown from $1 per hour to $2 per hour. While not New York pricing, this is one of the highest in a 250 mile radius. On top of it they increased the rates for city garages. So let’s see…what was the plan to bring more people downtown?
What stuff does your city do that you question?
