Tell Tunney “More Options, Not More Parking”: Pitch In!

Are you against Alderman Tunney’s plans to build more unnecessary parking in Lakeview (more here)?There are now several ways to DO something about it.

  • You can sign the online petition, here
  • You can go door to door collecting signatures using the physical petition or post flyers about the petition:  Parking petitionWrigley flyer
  • You can also help organizers do a parking audit on opening day:

“Alderman Tunney still supports building a new parking garage at Wrigley Field. Monday, April 8, is the Cubs’ deadline for a renovation deal, and it is Wrigley Field opening day! Let’s get together and see the parking first-hand–is there even a shortage? Meet at 2:30 p.m. Monday for walking and biking tours of Wrigley parking lots. Email for details or to offer help from your computer. Bikes optional. Let’s keep Lakeview a vibrant urban community. Thank you for your ongoing support!”
