Transportation and Parking
Residents of the Lake View – Uptown Community are reminded that there is a Cubs Night Game Permit Parking Program in effect in the residential community around Wrigley Field during the 30 night games played by the Cubs. The City Clerk has offered an extension of the grace period through July 15th for City of Chicago vehicle stickers as well as ANNUAL zone 383 parking permits. Green daily guest passes are EXPIRED, only orange passes can be used. Annual zone 383 parking permits, as well as guest passes are available for sale in 44th Ward office, but you must have a CURRENT City of Chicago vehicle sticker receipt, proof of residency, ID and $25 cash.
Starting July 1, 2008, all residential streets north of Addison, south of Irving Park and west of Broadway will be our newest 383 Residential Permit Parking Zone, every day from 6PM-6AM. Parking on Program area streets without a Permit being displayed can result in your car being towed. That is, Alderman Tunney and Alderman Shiller are changing residential streets from LV2 to Zone 383.
For 2008, it is intended to discontinue the distribution by the Department of Revenue of free LV2 resident parking permits to area residents who presently live on Zone 383 streets. This includes the area bounded by Ashland, Addison, Racine and Belmont, which changed from LV2 to Zone 383 in 2007.
Residents living on Zone LV2 streets will be mailed one "All Game Window Sticker" and one "All Game Guest Parking Permit". Single game guest permits will continue to be available at Aldermanic Offices. Residents living on "border / buffer zone" arterial streets (Ashland, Irving Park, Addison where appropriate), will be mailed LV2 permits and will have the opportunity to buy Zone 383 permits.
Starting in 2008 - Night baseball LV2 resident parking permits will no longer be valid in the 383 zone. Similarly, Zone 383 resident parking permits will no longer be valid in the LV2 zone. All-game permits (LV2 and 383 resident and guests) WILL ONLY BE VALID ON VEHICLES DISPLAYING A VALID CITY VEHICLE STICKER.
Lake View Community Night Base Ball Resident Parking Advisory
Residents in the new 383 zone MUST purchase their 1st 383 RPP sticker in person - either at the City Clerk's Office or their Alderman’s office when the City Clerk comes to sell their stickers. Next year they will get a renewal notice, but the first sticker must be purchased in person.
The annual fee for a parking permit is $25. Single day guest permits are available at a cost of $5 for a book of 15 permits. Residents must have a current Chicago city vehicle sticker and show proof of residence and a receipt for the City Sticker to purchase the parking permit. The City of Chicago will tow illegally parked vehicles from the Night Baseball Parking Permit areas to a city auto pound. It will cost, at minimum, $150.00 to retrieve a vehicle. This may include vehicles belonging to residents who do not have properly displayed parking permits.
TO REPORT NIGHT BASEBALL & OTHER PARKING VIOLATIONS ON YOUR STREET
Residents may request parking violation enforcement on their streets by reporting violations to the Chicago Police Hotline - 1 (866) 4CPD-TOW.
Vehicle towed as a result of an enforcement action are towed to Auto Pound #6 at 701 N. Sacramento (773) 265-7605. It will cost, at minimum, $150, to retrieve a vehicle. A citizen can check to see if their car has been towed by calling 311.

LVCC was involved in discussions related to these parking restrictions and appreciate the efforts of the City and Alderman Tunney to resolve Cubs related traffic problems.
2005 Neighborhood Protection Plan Annual Report is now available. Last year the Chicago Cubs devoted countless hours and more than $850,000 to
address issues such as traffic, off-street parking, litter collection and other
needs of the community. Among the new items on tap for 2006, we have eliminated all Friday afternoon 2:20 p.m. starts in response
to neighbors who stressed these games make it hard to find parking for residents
coming home from work.
For the 2005 Cubs' Season:
|LVCC is a 501.c.3 non-profit organization, and all donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed under the law.
