Extended Overnight Parking Permits

To assist residents whose unique circumstances require an increase in the need to park on the street overnight. The Village of Vernon Hills has created a permit process.  Note: These permits are only available in single-family neighborhoods.  

To be eligible to obtain a permit:

  • Residents must have exhausted all house hold parking options and exhibit unique circumstances requiring special consideration.
  • Residents must currently be utilizing their garages and driveways to full design capacity to park household, non-commercial vehicles. This excludes boats, snowmobiles, motorcycles etc.
  • Garage stalls and driveway space must remain open and available for parking throughout the duration of the Overnight Parking Permit.
  • Applicants must complete a permit application, provide a copy of their Driver’s License and pay associated permit fees.

Permit Rules and Restrictions

  • Permits are available throughout the year.  They may be issued consecutively, but shall not exceed 130 days in a row or more than 190 days per year.
  • There will be a minimum 30 day waiting period before the issuance of another Permit once the 130 consecutive day threshold has been met.
  • All Permit requests are subject to verification by VHPD staff.  This process includes an inspection of the applicant’s garage and may take up to two weeks.
  • No reimbursement will be given for unused portions of Parking Permits
  • Maximum 2 permits per household
  • Should a resident need to extend a current Permit to a longer duration, only the difference in cost between the two permits shall be paid.  Example: A $50.00, 30 day permit extended to 60 days will only be subject to an additional $25.00 fee.

Vehicle Owner Responsibilities

  • Obey all posted signs regulating parking on the street.
  • Park on the correct side of the street.
  • Maintain vehicle in an operable state at all times.
  • Permit Vehicles may not remain parked in the same spot for more than 24 hours
