Street Parking Coming To Logan Boulevard, Residents Upset Over Change In Law
But, starting in a few weeks, parking on the boulevard from Western Ave. to Kimball, and some of the adjacent side streets in the Logan Square neighborhood will be allowed for up to 16 hours a day in some cases according to the Chicago Tribune.
A new law was passed unanimously in the City Council last month to allow parking along this historic street, but some residents are angry and vowing to fight back against the measure, sponsored by 35th ward alderman Rey Colon.
Curiously, the Chicago Department of Transportation says allowing parking along thoroughfares to improve safety by naturally slowing traffic.
Here’s the Trib’s full report, “Boulevard parking angers Logan Square residents.”
