Transportation Ballot Measures
November 03, 2009
Type: Charter/Constitutional Amendment
Voters rejected a proposed charter amendment that would have required that any rail project, including the $185 million, 7.9-mile streetcar plan, be subject to a general vote by the citizens of Cincinnati. The broad wording of the amendment implied that any rail project, regardless of whether it has a tax increase associated with it, would be prevented from moving forward until receiving voter approval.
