Our neighbors in Lakeview need your help in preventing Alderman Tunney from turning the neighborhood into more of a parking lot. Please add your voice to this important issue that will have profound effects on transportation across the North Side. These negotiations are an opportunity to focus on transit, cycling, pedestrian, and livability issues and how transportation impacts community life. Your support is essential, make yourself heard before APRIL 8th.
“The word is out: Alderman Tom Tunney wants to build a huge parking garage in Lakeview (Chicago Tribune).* Few are standing up to say that parking garages bring more traffic and pollution to the neighborhood** and they are ugly. Let’s spend the money on bicycling, transit, walking, and shuttles to existing garages.Will you tell Alderman Tunney that we want better solutions? It’s easy, sign the petition here: www.change.org/petitions/alderman-tom-tunney-chicago-don-t-turn-lakeview-into-a-parking-lot.Alderman Tunney and the Cubs are negotiating every day, with a deadline of Monday, April 8. They need to hear from YOU. Please sign even if you do not live in the 44th Ward, as this issue affects us all.
SpotHero.com was invented in Lakeview to direct guests to parking, to match up supply to demand. Lakeview and neighboring communities have parking lots that don’t fill up, including Cubs’ surface lots, Truman College, DeVry University, and lots of hospitals. With a little planning and more investment in choices, we do not need this garage.
Please sign the petition TODAY and send this message to Alderman Tunney and the Cubs.
