More Streetcars for Seattle?
Mike Lindblow reports:
The city already has a South Lake Union streetcar, and a 2013 line is planned on First Hill, paid for by Sound Transit and built by the city. The City Council wants to link those lines through downtown, with First Avenue the leading candidate.
Proponents hope and opponents fear that the millions of dollars the proposition allocates for planning studies will create irresistible political momentum to follow in the tracks of Portland and build a network."
