For those of you wondering why all the parking fuss anyway? Well, Oak Park’s parking rules and regulations actually date back to the late 1920’s where, even back then, vehicle stickers were required. As the Village finished its’ planning in the 1930’s and more and more residents started owning cars the issues of parking became more apparent and government decided to regulate. Today, the sheer number of people alone (52,000) that live in Oak Park along with, roughly, 29,000 cars to find places for, makes it necessary to continue to have parking rules in place.
O.k., back to this weekend’s parking details.
Parking restrictions will be lifted from 2:30 a.m., Sat., May 25, and will resume at 2:30 a.m., Wed., May 29. So if you are having guests you do not have to worry.
Of course, some restrictions will remain in effect in certain overnight permit areas, such as Village-owned lots, on-street enclaves and on-street overnight parking zones. All other parking regulations also remain in effect, including any and all daytime posted restrictions/regulations. And, of course, the Memorial holiday does not affect parking meters – so keep your quarters at the ready.
