Parking restrictions loosened for Labor Day weekend: The Village of Oak Park will ease up on its parking restrictions this weekend.
Vehicles bearing permits are allowed to park on the street overnight in designated multifamily housing areas, except in front of churches, schools and parks and on blocks where housing is more than 50 percent single family.
In areas of Oak Park not zoned for multi-unit buildings or designated as permit areas, the overnight parking ban remains fully in effect.
Other parking restrictions are determined by location within the Village, length of parking time and even weather. For example, daytime restrictions include the following:
- No parking 8 – 10 a.m., Monday – Friday
- Two-hour parking 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday – Friday
- No Parking 8 – 10 a.m., Tuesday for Street Cleaning
- Resident Permit Parking Only
