Save Lincoln Square's Small Businesses

The parking lot at 4715 N Western Avenue (Leland and Western) is in danger of being eliminated, with the land being given to out of town developers, with limited community input.

The loss of public parking to development will adversely hurt local businesses in Lincoln Square and beyond who rely on vehicular traffic for many of their customers. Also at risk are the local heritage and regional draw represented by the German Day Festival, Applefest, Mayfest, the local Farmer’s Market, the DANK Haus German Cultural Center, Old Town School of Folk Music, and the Davis Theater.  This parking issue will only become worse, as Northwestern Health prepares to open their new clinic in the former Brauhaus location at 4732 Lincoln, placing further stress on already limited parking resources.

We urge you to sign this petition to let the 47th Ward Alderman, Chicago Department of Housing, and Mayor Lori Lightfoot know that there is an urgent need to save our parking in order to preserve our local businesses and authentic culture.
