On-street parking is prohibited between the hours of 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. daily. Beginning Monday, Nov. 19, on-street single-night parking exemptions will be limited to three exemptions per month, per vehicle, according to the city of Naperville.

“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 in a press release. “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 also contact the Naperville Police 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 will evaluate resident feedback, draft an evaluation report and make adjustments to the program at that time.

Nice to see that the overnight parking is not being eliminated. That is what the rumors were. It is nice to see the City trying to keep the City nice, w/o some people having too many cars for their driveway, blocking the sidewalk and a garage full of junk inside. It also discourages some groups from moving all their extended family in a single home and making our streets look like a chicago neighborhood street. i hope this pilot run becomes permanent.

I live in a 2 bedroom town home with 2 parking spaces. We have 3 adults, my husband, son and myself. All have to work and to get to work we have to drive our vehicles. We have ZERO parking options for our son's car in the winter. These overnight exceptions need to be modified to consider families like us who pay our taxes and should have the right to park our much needed and used vehicles!!

We have several over nite parkers on Tennyson, Prospect, and Rhodes In The Villas..for awile the Naper PD was doing their due dilligence for awile and they they moved on; perhaps homeowners can get "friendly warning tickets from the PD and place on the offender's windshield." But then if we get caught, we would get fined for "criminal tresspass to an illegally parked car." So go figure! Agree with Darcy.
