Urgent Help Needed !!!
The City of Cincinnati is currently reviewing the City Manager’s proposed 2018/2019 Capital Budget. We need your help to request that funds are allocated for the Wasson Way. Please contact Mayor Cranley and all City Council Members and ask them to include $500K in both the 2018 and 2019 capital budgets. (The City capital budget is different from the operating budget which is stretched very thin). This funding is critical if we are going to build future phases of the trail as quickly as possible. For your convenience, the email addresses are below as well as an example email (We encourage you to make it personal if you can.). As soon as possible-now would be the best!!!. Take a moment to send an email!!!
Thank you in advance for your help!
Board President Wasson Way.
Dear Mayor Cranley and Members of Cincinnati City Council:
Hello. I am a resident of the City of Cincinnati and I am writing to ask for your support of the Wasson Way Trail in the 2018/19 Capital Budget that is currently under review. Specifically, I believe that a $500K contribution in both 2018 and 2019 (total $1M over 2 years) is a reasonable amount for the City to contribute. This will allow design and construction to continue in a timely manner while making the most of the right-of-way the City recently acquired. The Wasson Way organization will soon be soliciting significant private donations and this shows future donors that the City is committed to partnering to making this trail a reality for our communities.
