Sign petition opposing parking garage near Wrigley Field

As yesterday’s Streetsblog article explains, a good way to bring more cars and traffic congestion to Cubs games and Wrigleyville is to build a giant parking garage.

Unfortunately, that is one idea on the table in Wrigley Field negotiations between 44th Ward Alderman Tom Tunney, the Cubs organization and the mayor’s office./

Wrigleyville is one of the most walkable, vibrant communities in the city. Let’s keep it that way by enhancing non-car travel options and remote parking to help Cubs fans get to games.

A new parking garage will only attract more cars and car traffic, making parking and traffic congestion in the area worse year-round.

Please sign this petition to Alderman Tunney created by local advocates who oppose a parking garage and support other solutions that are a good fit for Wrigleyville.
