Subject: Parking Ban Due to Filming in Lakeview
Lake View Citizens' Council
Dear John,

We received notice today that Universal Pictures will be filming "Public Enemies" and will be blocking streets in Lake View.  "No Parking" signs will be posted on the following streets between 2AM and 11PM starting Monday, June 23rd. 
  • Both sides of Clark from Newport to School
  • Both sides of Roscoe from Clark to Kenmore
  • Both sides of Roscoe from Sheffield to 1/2 block east
  • Both sides of Roscoe from Clark to Halsted
  • Both sides of Sheffield from Roscoe to Newport
  • South side of Newport from Clark to the 'el'
We have again expressed our concern to the Alderman's Office for the lack of advance notification, the number of adjacent streets impacted, the lack of parking alternatives, and how there has been no donation to the local neighborhood to help us beautify the neighborhood.  We noted last time how there were empty spots being blocked for the production trucks that were not being utilized by anyone during the parking ban.
 
If you cannot find parking or want to complain about the lack of advance notice, you are urged to call Universal Pictures at 312-829-7437.   
 
Also, please call the Chicago Film Office at 312-744-6415 or email Richard Moskal (rmoskal@cityofchicago.org), Yolanda Arias (yarias@cityofchicago.org), and Kathy Byrne (kbyrne@cityofchicago.org).
