The City Of Gainesville Exploring A Street Car System
Gainesville city commissioners are spending $100,000 to explore the value of creating a streetcar system.
The city is not breaking ground but leaders are exploring the impact a streetcar system may have on the economy and traffic.
While most commissioners think it's a good idea, some believe Gainesville can't afford such a large investment right now.
All commissioners except Todd Chase voted to move forward with $100,000 conceptual streetcar study.
The city began looking into the plans for Gainesville street cars four years ago.
Tindale Oliver and Associates was selected as the company to conduct Gainesville's study.
