Five months ago the city’s largest bicycling and transit advocacy group released a report ripping the Daley administration for entering into the parking meter privatization agreement. Yet Monday night the Active Transportation Alliance inducted Mayor Daley into its “hall of fame,” and the group will soon release a new version of the report—screened beforehand by city officials—that will recant many of the criticisms it made in June.

“We made some key mistakes in how we analyzed the agreement” the first time, says Rob Sadowsky, the group’s executive director. “But it gave us an opportunity to step back and have a dialogue with the city.”
