Local, regional and federal transportation leaders are meeting Thursday to talk about the future of light rail in the Tri-state.
Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune says the goal is to look at the region's opportunities and build momentum, "to present a vision of a regional rail plan as a part of a multi-modal transportation system and begin to generate some momentum and excitement about accomplishing that."
Portune says the all-day summit will be recorded and available online afterward. He expects a community survey on local transportation needs is also forthcoming.
The Ohio Department of Transportation is holding three meetings this week to provide updates on the development of Greater Cincinnati's first commuter rail line. ODOT will also be gathering input from the public about the the Oasis Rail Transit project.
