If only Prometheus has asked for this. It would have been funded for certain.

Promotheus must not have any plans to change zoning in the area so they told council to pass on this.
Prometheus probably needs the public money for other large, high density projects that they have in the pipeline.

The big dog in fights like this isn't Prometheus. It's the Building and Trades Council, who want it for the prevailing wage construction jobs.
Take a look at the map if you want to understand light rail. The train starts out going northwest, makes a 165 degree turn, and leaves going southeast. No matter how much you spend on extra sidewalk, that train is going to be super slow.
