Ordinances - Overnight Parking

Overnight Parking Ban (2 a.m. - 6 a.m. )

Beginning January 1, 2006 the new overnight parking ban ordinance goes into effect. This ordinance prohibits parking on all Village of Oswego streets (except some specific locations in the Hometown Subdivision and historical residential streets downtown) between the hours of 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. Realizing that there are some times when our residents will need a temporary exemption to this ordinance the police department has developed a process for residents to request these exemptions.

A resident may request a temporary exemption for vehicles owned by them or a guest at their residence. This request will be made by calling the police department's non-emergency phone number 630-551-7300 . When making this call you will have to provide your residence address and the vehicle's license plate number and state, make, color and model. We will also need to know the date(s) for which the exemption is being requested.

These exemptions will be for times when you may be having out of town guests for a family party or some other event for which you do not have enough garage and driveway space to allow all the vehicles to park off of the street. These will not be permanent exemptions and each request will be reviewed by a watch commander.

Knowing that a few particular times of the year are particularly busy times for guests to visit we will not require any exemptions to be requested during the following times:

  • Easter, Friday - Monday
  • Memorial Day weekend, Friday - Monday
  • July 1 – July 5
  • Labor Day weekend, Friday - Monday
  • Thanksgiving weekend, Wednesday - Monday
  • December 22 - January 2, of each year
  • PrairieFest, Friday - Monday of Father's Day weekend

Should snow fall occur, the snow parking ordinance will supersede any parking exemptions.
