A War On Parking

A zoning rewrite will impose tougher restrictions on downtown parking in Chicago.

City Hall wants to increase the pain of parking downtown. Aiming to get commuters to give up the car and use mass transit, city officials are pushing for tougher restrictions on downtown parking as they rewrite the city’s 46-year-old zoning code...The conviction that drivers will give up their cars only if they have an appealing alternative is the idea behind the centerpiece of the city’s downtown growth plan: the West Loop Transportation Center.
