The Regional Transit Alliance has submitted a proposal that involves extending the streetcar by 3.75 miles.  To pay for this expansion, advocates are proposing a 1-cent sales tax within a set district boundary and property tax assessments for properties within a third of a mile of the route.  The Jackson County Circuit Court ruled in late September that the proposal could move forward, paving the way for a series of elections in 2017.
