Provided from City of Cincinnati

Cincinnati Council will likely approve an ordinance Tuesday telling city administrators to complete the first phase of the streetcar project in Downtown and Over-the-Rhine.  The action comes as the city's new mayor, John Cranley, has vowed to stop the plan.  

Council's Budget and Finance Committee approved the ordinance Monday after a conference call with Dorval Carter, who's the chief counsel for the Federal Transit Administration.  The FTA has provided funding for the city project.  He said requests to pause or cancel a project are relatively rare.

The Cincinnati Park Board has decided to cancel Saturday’s Balluminaria at Eden Park because of the forecast for high winds.  

Officials said in a release balloons like calmer wind speeds, in the single digits, especially for inflating in smaller areas such as Mirror Lake.  Wind speeds Saturday are predicted to be 20 plus miles per hour.  

The park board said it doesn't want to risk the safety of the balloonists, staff or guests.  

The event will not be rescheduled.
