Changes to daytime parking rules take effect

Oak Park residents with an active Village vehicle license can now override daytime parking restrictions posted on the blocks where they live. The new exemption from daytime parking restrictions is intended to provide relief to residents from undue burden created by parking restrictions that are intended to regulate parking for non-residents and commuters. The daytime parking exemption does not override other posted regulations related to traffic, public safety, permit parking and other paid parking zones. The new exemption was approved by the Village Board earlier this year following an extensive parking pilot program. For more information, contact or 708.358.7275 or visit

The diagram below illustrates how the exemption applies to a typical residential block face, with the star representing a residence and the dotted lines representing the street frontages on which a resident is exempt from applicable daytime restrictions.
