City Manager Milton Dohoney Jr. will resign effective Dec. 1.
CINCINNATI -- Milton Dohoney, Jr. pushed Tuesday for economic development during the streetcar project, just before preparing to leave city hall.
He became Cincinnati's City Manager in Aug., 2006, and came in with his sleeves rolled up.
"I have always been consistent and the city needs to be aggressive about growth," Dohoney said.
His idea of growing transportation would put a public rail system from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport (CVG) to downtown Cincinnati

Dohoney worked hard during his time in City Hall to make the streetcar happen, despite the efforts of mayor-elect John Cranley to derail it.
"I think it would be a step back in terms of the economic growth because fixed rail spurs development," he said.
