    I just realized that there will be many new metered parking spots associated with the new South Loop development. If those are mixed into the parking meter contract, that will allow the city to remove metered spots elsewhere. That would enable construction of better bike lanes, bus stops, and curb bump outs.

    That may be true but I’ll wait and see if the city actually decides to that.
