Fort Worth Kills Streetcar Plan

City officials in Fort Worth, Texas, have backed out of plans to build a streetcar downtown.

The city council voted 5-3 against the project. Funding concerns killed the project, according to Mayor Mike Moncrief.

"'This has been a real struggle for me,' Moncrief said. 'The bottom line is, many of us are still wrestling with concerns over funding.'

A vote to proceed with the study would have paved the way for the city to accept a $25 million federal grant, which was expected to jump-start the estimated $88 million project."

Fort Worth is one of many

Fort Worth is one of many American cities that will be completely dumbfounded and without a clue as to how to respond once gasoline reaches 5, 10, 15 dollars per gallon. Cities like this will likely become massive sprawling ghettos, our version of the shantytowns that occupy the fringes of some cities in third world countries.
