A no-trucks parking sign is on the way for the 800 block of North Winchester Avenue, according to 1st Ward staffer Ronda Locke. Till it's installed (possibly fall) a delivery obstacle course may face drivers near Roots Handmade Pizza.
Managing partner Scott Weiner is working on it. He confirmed last month that the restaurant at 1924 W. Chicago Ave. does not plan to add a carryout window on the side street "at any point," and will follow the delivery and cafe protocols negotiated with the East Village Association in June. The agreement calls for annual meetings with EVA.
Roots and the adjoining Bleeding Heart Bakery Cafe share a loading zone on Chicago Avenue, but often it's parked in.
