Certain streets restrict parking to neighborhood residents during specified hours. By keeping non-residents out of the zone, Residential Permit Parking makes it easier for people to park by their home.
If you live in a residential permit parking zone, you will pay an additional $25 for your annual City Vehicle Sticker. The zone number will appear on the sticker, giving you the right to park in that zone. In addition, if you live in a zone, you may purchase up to two books of guest passes per month. Each book contains 15 passes. Each pass is good for 24 hours.
You may be required to present photo ID, and proof of address (such as lease or mortgage).
You can purchase City Stickers and Daily Passes at the Chicago City Clerk’s offices:
5430 W. Gale Street (by the Jefferson Park train station)
Mon-Fri 9am - 5pm
City Hall, 121 N. LaSalle St, Room 107

Each household is entitled to two permits each year, with a third sale authorized only if the occupants are moving permanently from their residence. Click here to access the permit.
