My concerns for this, and others in the city, are for those where they have garages, carports, or other accesses from their property that open onto these alleys.

I'd like to see a shared model, as those who have these areas opening onto the alley can't just be told "sorry, you can't park/get a vehicle back here any more". That's a selling feature on a house. When we were looking at homes in the lower city, that was something our house had to have - a garage/carport/parking space on the property. To take that away is something that is going to be VERY disagreeable for those who use their spaces back there.

As for the "but what about the weeds that attract wildlife?" non-argument, plant a butterfly bush. They can be perennials, and would be far more attractive (not to mention safe!) option. I mean, who wants to wipe out into a thistle bush?
