CHICAGO -- The Chicago Park District's Board of Commissioners tabled a proposal that would have required drone users to get a permit before flying the unmanned aircraft over the city's parks, beaches and harbors.
During a meeting at Indian Boundary Park Wednesday, General Counsel Timothy King said the park district needs to have guidelines in place for the emerging technology. Drone usage has taken off for commercial and recreational purposes, though regulation has proven to be tricky.
Commissioners reached a consensus that they had too many unanswered questions to vote on the amendment. They agreed to take up the issue again at next month's meeting.
