The on-again, off-again trolley

By DENNIS SABO
Practically every time the members
of the Ann Arbor Transportation
Authority (AATA) Board remove an

obstacle blocking construction of the
proposed downtown trolley line, they
seem to throw another in its path.
Last Wednesday, the AATA gave
Chase-Mogdis, a downtown consulting

a { I

firm, the go-ahead to complete the
second and final phase of a $10,000
trolley feasibility study. The vote of ap-
proval was a reversal from its Nov. ,16
decision not to complete the study's
second phase.
ALTHOUGH BOARD members gave
their approval to the study, they ended
last week's trolley debate by stating no
matter what the second phase results
show, they will not implement AATA
funds for the trolley or apply for any.
AATA Board Chairman Edwin Pear
said although the board did take a firm
stance, members could change their
minds at any given time.
Since the trolley idea originated five
years ago, it has met City Council and
AATA resentment, as well as spells of
low public support.
"IT'S JUST LIKE a yo-yo," said
Mary Lou Slater, president of the Ann
Arbor Street Railway and Museum
group. "You never know; another year
and the trolley could be in."
The trolley study itself has come un-
der some criticism, with some board
members questioning its findings.
"I found it a little difficult to
swallow," said member William Mc-
Connell. "The figures seem to me to be
on the optimistic side."
Pear also expressed disbelief with the
findings.
"I don't think the figures are real-
istic," he said. "We shouldn't spend
money on an amusement-type ride."
FRANZ MOGDIS, partner of Chase-
Mogdis, said his firm's findings were
reviewed by a state transportation

group that labeled the study's first part
"outstanding."
"They (AATA board members) may
not like the figures, but I feel the fin-
dings indicate there is a demand and
public support for the trolley," Mogdis
said.
The first part of the state-funded
study recommended that a one-track
trolley line be installed on Liberty
Street, running between State and
Ashley, and a second route running on
Fourth Avenue from Liberty to
Catherine. The proposed system would
connect the city's three downtown
business districts - State Street, Main
Street, and the Kerrytown/Farmer's
Market area.
ALTHOUGH THE SECOND part of
the study will detail actual construction
costs, the original findings place the
trolley's price tag at $1 million.
State transportation official John Le-
bovick said $40,000 in state funds are
presently available for the trolley.
"There are many different places
that we can draw from," Lebovick said.
"If the city of Ann Arbor wants the
trolley, fine, we'll try to help them. But
if they don't, we don't want them to
bother us."
Meanwhile, AATA board members,
city council members, and downtown
merchants alike doubt if the trolley will
ever be constructed.
"It's not going to happen," Jamie
Kenworthy (D-Fourth Ward) said. "We
(City Council) aren't against the
trolley, but we can't justify the costs. It
just doesn't make economic sense."

EMU student jumps
from dorm window

YPSILANTI (UPI( - A 20-year-old
Eastern Michigan University fresh-
woman died after jumping out of her
fourth floor dormitory room window

yesterday in an apparent suicide,
according to campus police.
Maureen Ellman of Southfield was
pronounced dead on arrival at near-
by St. Joseph Hospital. The cause of
death was listed as massive chest
injuries due to the fall.
EMU OFFICIALS said another
resident of the dormitory heard a
scream and a loud thud, looked out
her window and saw nothing at
approximately 11:30 a.m. The wo-
man's body was not discovered until
about 30 minutes later when a
passerby found it and called police.
There was blood in the woman's
room, apparently from self-inflicted
cuts, university officials said.
Investigators found no suicide
note.
