March 11, 2013
Yesterday, according to WCPO:
CINCINNATI – People who oppose the city’s new parking plan began collecting signatures Sunday in an effort to get the issue on the November ballot.
The kick off event, led by Cincinnati City Councilmember Christopher Smitherman, Amy Murray and Pete Witte, took place Sunday at Oakley Square.
Witte said the event exceeded expectations, especially because of the short turnaround time event organizers had to put it together.

A hearing will take place Friday, March 15 in Hamilton County Common Please Court. Opponents will ask for an injunction to prevent the city’s lease from taking effect until a referendum is held.
