$58.7 million.

The Over-the-Rhine Facebook page posted this today:
From the city manager's proposed 2011/2012 budget: "The operating budget contains no line item money for the Cincinnati Streetcar, and even if it were not being built the deficit would still be $58.7 million."

$58.7 million is the projected operating budget deficit for the City of Cincinnati whether we build the streetcar or not. Anyone care to calculate out the cost of inaction? If you think 60 million is bad, imagine the cost of halting all development and investment in our community.
