Free Sunday parking starting 2 weeks early for some Chicago wards
A dozen wards on the West and South Side will begin offering free Sunday parking this weekend two weeks early.
Mayor Emanuel negotiated a trade of free Sundays in neighborhoods in exchange for meters running until midnight in the Gold Coast, Loop, River North and South Loop.
But as many as 15 aldermen have discussed repealing that measure.
They want meters to run on Sundays in retail areas to free up spaces for shoppers.
