Oklahoma City residents can offer their thoughts on the latest plans for a downtown streetcar at a community meeting at 6 p.m. Monday at the Downtown Library, 300 Park Ave.

The meeting is on the library's fourth floor.

Consultants last month submitted four alternatives for running the proposed $94 million streetcar line through downtown. All four routes — ranging in length from 4 to 4.6 miles — would connect MidTown and the St. Anthony Hospital neighborhood with the Bricktown entertainment and residential district.

The project is part of the $777 million MAPS 3 building program funded by a penny sales tax.
