Crossing my fingers for some kind of “major” announcement.
Would be nice to see the Broad Street road-diet finally move forward. Or more ambitiously, a pair of streetcar lines (whetstone to schiller park, casino to capital university, etc).February 4, 2012 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #476228
I would hope, that this being Columbus’ 200th birthday, that this SOTC would be chalk full of “major” announcements and pizzaz. I’m hoping to be wowed.February 4, 2012 7:31 pm at 7:31 pm #476229
Major announcements means happy citizen :)February 23, 2012 2:59 pm at 2:59 pm #476230
From Mayor Coleman’s twitter a few minutes ago. Anyone want to take some guesses??
@MichaelBColeman – Can’t wait to reveal our BIG surprise at the 2012 State of the City Address. Hope to see everyone there.February 23, 2012 4:17 pm at 4:17 pm #476231
I’d love to hear that the Streetcar is back on track (pun intended). No real clue as to what the big announcement might actually be…February 23, 2012 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm #476232
Yeah, the street car is what immediately comes to mind – it certainly would be the best time and place to announce it, but I’m trying not to get my hopes up. It is mostly the reason I’ll be going though- just in case!February 23, 2012 5:33 pm at 5:33 pm #476233
Lady Gaga popping out of a cake? That would be a surprise. :-)February 23, 2012 7:00 pm at 7:00 pm #476234
Hmm.. maybe it is a plan for mass transit in Central Ohio and will announce public AND private investment from surrounding suburbs…i can dream cant I?February 23, 2012 7:42 pm at 7:42 pm #476235
How do we even know he has a major announcement? I highly doubt mass transit will even be on his list of stuff to talk about. He’ll talk about the recycling program. He’ll talk about Columbus Pride and how the city will be continuing the celebration.He’ll talk about our Kids, and how they are important to our future, so we should invest in them. He’ll talk about Jobs, because who doesn’t like a politician who talks about job growth! Might talk about college affordability/Joe Bidens efforts. Plus whatever else will affect the citizens of Columbus. If high gas prices are on the list, I’m sure he will talk about COTA initiatives in providing the citizens with better public transportation.February 23, 2012 7:46 pm at 7:46 pm #476236February 23, 2012 8:01 pm at 8:01 pm #476237
I think I get the reference. He will dance on a floor-keyboard with Tom Hanks.February 29, 2012 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #476238
Tonight. Looking forward to the annual update and any announcements. ;)February 29, 2012 5:35 pm at 5:35 pm #476239
If he says anything about mass transit, it’ll be about the BRT study already previously announced, in which case it’s nothing new and Columbus will continue to be one of the largest cities without significant alternative transit.
Other than that, I can’t imagine what would be big. New skyscraper? New HQ moving here? Already announced art projects around town? Finally implementing the years old recycling plan? He and Frankie are getting back together?
I expect some sense of letdown coming.February 29, 2012 5:37 pm at 5:37 pm #476240
wonderland buying a building.
