Neighborhood Parking Change
At this week’s Naperville City Council meeting, a new parking policy was proposed that would allow homeowners associations to distribute passes that allow residents to park on the street overnight without being ticketed. Currently the city prohibits parking on streets between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. Each neighborhood would be able to opt in to the program if they so choose, but would need to go through a vetting process for approval. City staff was directed to establish the processes by which a HOA can apply and be approved for street parking, with a final vote on the program to take place at a future meeting.
Liquor Commission Outdoor Seating Approval
Four more restaurants in downtown Naperville have requested permission to place outdoor seating on public walkways. At last night’s Naperville Liquor Commission meeting, the group heard requests from Giordanos, La Sorella di Francesca, Le Chocolat du Bouchard, and Allegory. Recently, The Lantern petitioned the committee for a similar permit, resulting in the group increasing the cap on downtown outdoor seating permits to six: a request that was approved by Naperville City Council. At the commission’s meeting last night, the group decided that all four of the restaurants plans for outdoor seating fit the guidelines and regulations that downtown Naperville currently has set, and gave their approval. The matter will now go to city council for consideration.
