CINCINNATI (AP) - Residents are sounding off about a taxpayer-supported $331 million plan to fix up two Cincinnati icons that have been listed among the nation’s most endangered historic landmarks.

Hundreds of supporters and opponents of the plan came out to a convention center on Wednesday night to offer their opinions to Hamilton County commissioners who will decide the fate of the plan to rehab Music Hall and Union Terminal.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (https://cin.ci/1ui5eZs ) reports that most came to support the proposal. They held signs urging commissioners to “Save Our Icons.”

Critics of the plan say it would be unfair to impose a quarter-cent sales tax increase to cover part of the project cost.

Commissioners must decide by Aug. 6 whether to put the proposed sales tax on the ballot.
