Alderman Laurino co-sponsored an ordinance creating school loading zones. This legislation creates a category of loading zone just for schools and day care facilities for dropping off and picking up children. This will allow for greater safety for our children when they are entering or leaving schools and day cares. Alderman Laurino committed to protecting the safety of our most vulnerable residents, including children.
