Parking Conflict Still Simmers In Logan Square
For as long as anyone can remember, cars were not allowed to park along Logan Boulevard.
But recently and quietly, Alderman Rey Colon (35th) was able to pass municipal legislation allowing parking along the boulevard on certain days and times.
Allegedly this was done at the behest of church goers with a dearth of legal parking spots in Logan Square, while others argue it was done to appease local bar and restaurant owners who’s patrons can never find places to park.
The change in parking policy and the speed of how it was done has many Logan Square residents really ticked off. So much so, a group of concerned citizens have started a group to fight the recent changes called Save Our Boulevards (SOB).
Paris Schutz of WTTW’s Chicago Tonight ventures into Logan Square to get some insight on the issue in his piece, “Faith, Politics, and… Parking.”
