Construction on the Aurora side of the lot has taken away 400 available spaces. So as per suggestion of the council, the city has decided to convert some permit spots on the Naperville side into daily use spaces.
“We actually have a grouping of the permit spots that we make available currently at 9am for someone who wants to do a daily fee. So what we’re going to do is take those spaces, which there’s about 135 of those, and make them daily fee beginning at 6 a.m.,” said Jennifer Louden, Deputy Director of Transportation, Engineering and Development for the City of Naperville.
Permit use in general has been down since 2008; first due to the declining economy, then because of construction, so the reassignment is a perfect solution.
Spots will cost two dollars a day, and will likely be available through November, when the construction should be complete.
