Residential Parking Permit

Residential Parking Permit Application and Information

Chapter 9-64-090 of the Municipal Code of Chicago provides for the establishment of residential parking permit (RPP) zones for areas in which residents have difficulty parking due to the presence of a disproportionate number of non-resident owned vehicles parked in the area.

To be eligible for consideration, the proposed zone must meet the following criteria:

  • Proposed RPP zone is a minimum of one block. If more than one block, all blocks in the proposed zone must be contiguous.
  • At least 80 percent of the occupied frontage, at ground level, of each block in the proposed RPP zone is in use for residence purposes.
  • A parking study determines that at least 45 percent of the vehicles parked in the proposed RPP zone during the time periods requested for the permit are not owned by residents of the proposed zone.
  • A parking study determines that at least 85 percent of available on-street parking in the proposed RPP zone is occupied during the time periods requested for the permit.
  • A petition signed and dated by at least 65 percent of the residents in the proposed zone who are holders of the city wheel tax license emblem must accompany the application.

To apply for a residential parking permit zone, please submit the completed application and signed petition to rpp@cityofchicago.org.
