Reserving a Handicapped Parking Space
Residents with a documented handicap or disability may apply for a reserved parking space on the street in front of their home. No more than one space per home shall be permitted.
All restricted handicap parking spaces will be reserved on an exclusive basis and may be used only by the qualified disabled person or family for which the parking space was created.
- First, residents need to download and fill out the Disabled Parking Sign Request Form.
- Completed forms need to be turned in to the Village Clerk along with a doctor’s certificate evidencing the existence of the handicap, a statement as to whether the handicap is permanent, and a copy of the state registration showing the issuance by the State of Illinois of a vehicle registration for a handicapped person or disabled veteran.
- The Village Clerk will forward the request to the Director of Police Service. After reviewing the area in question, the Director of Police Service will submit a written report to the Village Board making a recommendation as to either approving of denying the request. The Board will then either grant or deny the request and if granted, shall by ordinance provide for the establishment of the reserved space specifying the dimensions, location and time limit for the grant.
Reserved handicapped parking spaces must be renewed no less than once every two years. Renewals will be done in odd numbered years for odd numbered addresses and in even numbered years for even numbered addresses.
Additional rules and restrictions apply. Please read Ordinance 2017-14 for more information about how this program can assist you.
