Snowfall may trigger parking restrictions

After a two-inch snowfall, the Emergency Snow Removal Parking Plan goes into effect and the following parking rules are enforced seven days a week, including holidays: 

  • Main streets posted as snow routes must be cleared of all parked cars. These include Augusta Street, Austin Boulevard, Chicago Avenue, Division Street, Garfield Street, Harlem Avenue, Harrison Street, Jackson Boulevard, Lake Street, Madison Street, North Avenue, Oak Park Avenue, Ridgeland Avenue, Roosevelt Road and Wisconsin Avenue from Madison Street to the emergency entrance of Rush Oak Park Hospital.
  • Non-snow route streets allow parking between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. on the side of the street with even numbered addresses on even days and the side of the street with odd numbered addresses on odd days.
  • Designated commercial parking areas as posted follow the odd/even rule from midnight to 8 a.m. Snow parking rules do not override other parking regulations, such as time limitations and prohibitions.
  • Vehicles parked in violation of the snow restrictions are subject to ticketing and towing. 

The purpose of the plan is to ensure access by emergency vehicles, improve traffic movement and allow snow removal equipment to operate quickly and efficiently. Residents are urged to monitor local forecasts and plan accordingly. Residents also can sign up to receive alerts when snow-related parking restrictions go into effect at Efforts also are made to post timely information to the Village’s social media sites, and The snow emergency parking rules and a list of frequently asked questions also are posted at
