Re:
Port
Authority'sreview
of
the
ParkingPlan
Dear
Sirs/Madame:
Following
the
rulingby
the
FirstDistrictCourtofAppealsin
June
thatthe
ParkingLease
among
the
CityofCincinnati,
the
PortAuthority,Guggenheim
and
Xerox
Corporation
could
proceedwithout
firstbeing
subject
toreferendum
on
the
measure
by
the
public,
the
City
of
Cincinnatiquicklysigned
the
lease
behind
closed
doors.
ThePortAuthority,a
supposedly
publicagency,
apparently
deliberated
fora
few
days,
askedfor
some
amendments
to
the
Lease
and
thenexecuted
an
amended
version
allowing
the
Portto
terminate
the
Lease
at
the
discretion
of
the
Port.
Thereafter,
the
Port
apparently
beganbothnegotiations
with
the
Cityforits
"piece
of
the
pie,"
andbegan
to
conductsome
due
diligencereviewof
the
plan.
All
of
the
foregoing
actions
by
both
the
City
and
the
Port
have
beenshrouded
in
secrecy.
Please
understand
that
before
all
ofthe
foregoing
actions
took
place,
19,803
citizens
signedpetitionstoplace
the
issueon
the
ballot
because
the
publicverymuch
wanted
a
say
on
thisplan.
The
petition
drive
wasspurred
by
hundreds
of
petitionersunited
by
theiropposition
to
—orat
least
their
heartfeltconcernsabout
the
Leaseplan.
Please
understand
the
importanceof
thestatement
made
by
these
circulators
and
petition
signers:
in
the
past30years
there
has
been
maybe
one
successfulCity-wide
referendum
other
than
thisone.
They
are
exceedingly
difficult
to
organize
successfully.
The
challenges
of
the
petition
drive
werecompounded
by
the
threats
ofpublic
safety
layoffsfrom
the
Mayor,
Manager
and
Council,
the
legal
uncertaintyhanging
over
the
drive,
and
the
Easterholiday
that
was
near
the
end
of
the
effort.Still,
we
collected
more
than
2.5
times
the
minimum
requiredsignatures
ina
short
30-
day
timeframe
to
place
the
issue
before
the
voters.
