CINCINNATI (AP) A proposed $102 million streetcar line has the endorsement of the city manager and the City Council’s economic development committee.

A line from the downtown business district to a nearby neighborhood in need of redevelopment could be up and running by December 2010, City Manager Milton Dohoney said, although other projects may have to be delayed to finance construction.

Committee members said they support the concept but asked for more information on what projects would have to be shelved.

“We need to do some reprogramming in order to achieve this big project, this big vision,” committee member Chris Bortz said. “If we continue to cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, the city will continue to decline.”
