First let me say that my S Loop friends and I are addicted to your site. SO, thank you and keep up the good work! Secondly, after much complaining to these same friends regarding an issue I have near my condo they said "Tell Sloopin"!
I believe that other people have discussed or commented about that restaurant, Acappella. This is some what related to that topic because I believe the owner is responsible for my parking wars headache. There are 3 cars parked on 13th and Michigan ( yellow jeep, subaru, crappy little pick-up) that have been parked there since last summer. YES LAST SUMMER, They never move their cars and when the owner needs to actual drive it, they move the other cars around so no one could get their secured spot. I'm highly annoyed.
In fact one of the vehicles has a homemade sign on the dash that says "Official Chicago Police Business". I think these people are unethical and clearly taking advantage. Even during street cleaning they do not get ticketed or move their vehicles.The one time I actually ran into this Chicago Cop, he told me he wasn't doing anything wrong and called me something not so nice. I'm attaching some pics, in the hopes that you will publish them on your site. I would like Fioretti to do something about this(and have written a letter). Maybe if enough people can bring attention to this "unofficial" business something can be done.
Devoted S Looper without parking
We've received complaints about this before, but obviously nothing has happened. So if you think this is a problem please email the alderman (firstname.lastname@example.org) and hopefully something can be done. Parking is already an issue in this neighborhood and people abusing the system doesn't make it any better.
