As the Village Board continues its comprehensive review of Oak Park’s wide array of parking rules and regulations, the focus will shift next to standardizing overnight permit times and identifying potential new spaces. This latest in the series of Village Board parking discussions is scheduled for 7 p.m., Mon., May 8 at Village Hall, 123 Madison St.
During this meeting, the Village Board will discuss current restrictions on two of the Village’s most traveled daytime commuter routes - Austin Boulevard and Harlem Avenue north of Division Street, the only Oak Park section of Harlem where the state allows on-street parking. These two sections of the Village share similar traffic patterns, but differ greatly in parking demand and regulations.
Officials say comparing these two high-traffic routes could offer insights into how regulations – or lack of them – could help simplify parking rules on other Village streets.
As the Village Board considers regulation changes, residents are invited to read the information below and watch the video, then share their comments with the Village Board.
