This is very good news. Sally should be commended for her support.
As mentioned before, the key to success now is making sure the waterfront park plan includes a streetcar line.
I will be participating in a panel discussion on the Benson streetcars at Horizon House next Monday. Phyllis Lamphere, a former colleague of George’s on the City Council and a strong advocate for re-activating the vintage cars, is sponsoring the discussion. Included on the panel is Marshall Foster, the City’s Director of Planning, who is heavily involved in the planning effort for the waterfront park. Hopefully, we will get a preview of the plans.
