A change in the city’s policy concerning overnight parking will begin on Monday.
On-street parking is prohibited between 2 and 5 a.m. Effective Monday, the Naperville Police Department will be implementing a new system limiting single-night on-street parking exemptions to three exemptions per month, per vehicle.
“Throughout the past several months, we’ve been evaluating ways to enforce the exemptions to the overnight on-street parking restrictions in a fair, uniform manner,” Police Chief Robert Marshall said. “We had noticed that we were receiving frequent requests for overnight exemptions over and over again. This is a way to balance the needs of our residents with the need to enforce the rules and regulations we have in place.”
Residents in need of single-night parking exemptions due to overnight guests, vehicle breakdowns, driveway sealcoating or other short-term parking issues can contact the Naperville Police Department at 630-420-6666 before 2 a.m. to request an exemption. Residents must provide the vehicle description, including vehicle registration information.
Residents in need of parking permits due to construction, medical care provider parking needs or other long-term exemptions should contact the department for permit information. The existing longer-term permit process will remain unchanged.
The new overnight exemption limitations will be monitored throughout the next six months as a pilot program. After six months, Police Department staff will evaluate resident feedback, draft an evaluation report and make adjustments to the program at that time.
