    Somehow the Cubs parking lot neighbors think they own the streets. Last time I checked, those were PUBLIC roads. And the Cubs are parking on a PRIVATE lot, that already exists.

    It’s funny that you also have a link about pedicabs and the city’s tendency to over regulate, but then in the past have supported strong regulation aka eliminating this parking agreement because of the children.

  • David Altenburg

    Yeah, it’s funny when someone has such a nuanced view as supporting good regulation while opposing bad regulation. It sure would be simpler if everyone’s view was just “ALL REGULATION GOOD” or “ALL REGULATION BAD”, but, like you said, that would be less funny.

    How is this good regulation? It’s a parking lot with no tailgating. I’m sorry, not sorry actually, its not a farmers market, but this a private agreement between two willing parties that has traffic on public roads. if the neighbors don’t like, privatize the road and maintain it themselves, oh wait that would be too expensive.
