    From Valley Metro:
    On February 9, 2016, planning for the Valley’s first streetcar line reached a significant funding milestone. Tempe Streetcar is included in President Obama’s budget for Fiscal Year 2017, for $75 million.The project moves ahead with next steps including design, preliminary engineering, utility assessments and vehicle procurement.
    ArtInPhoenix Editor’s note:
    The Valley actually had street cars at one time.  That ended in 1948.
