it doesn't go anywhere.... wow
but now, more and more, the center of gravity is shifting to San Francisco [from Silicon Valley], and the move seems to be hitting a tipping point. The reason: the young talent companies want to attract would rather live in a hip city than in suburban sprawl, and don't want to commute 45 minutes to work."
So I guess COAST will have to stop tweeting that the streetcar is starving the Cincinnati Fire Department of funds. See:http://www.building-cincinnati.com/2012/07/new-station-to-bring-cfd-engine-35-into.html

The Enquirer's piece on today's vote: City moving money in place for streetcar
"Of the two actions, the revision of Cincinnati’s 2006 sale of about 130 acres to the city of Blue Ash could have the more significant impact on the streetcar project....City officials previously said they hoped to use the airport sale proceeds to cover payments on about $11 million in streetcar bonds...The Federal Aviation Administration, however, raised objections, telling City Hall it would have to keep the sale revenue within its airport system, which includes Lunken Airport in the East End....But by rescinding the original sale and approving a new deal with some procedural changes, the city can sidestep that potential restriction on use of the Blue Ash revenue, which will be paid over 24 years.“If the agreement was not restructured, the proceeds probably couldn’t be used (for the streetcar) without the risk of litigation,” said City Solicitor John Curp."
