Naperville residents and visitors may soon be able to park on the street overnight.
Currently, law prohibits overnight parking on city streets from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. But that could change, as the city is testing nighttime parking in select areas.
“We’ll be analyzing it based on different criteria amongst the departments, for example the fire department will be looking at emergency response times, for the department of public works we’ll be looking at how it impacts their operations as far as leaf collection, snow removal, general compliance, as well as neighborhood participation,” said Ashley Hagen, Project Manager with the City of Naperville.
The test is expected to last for a year, after which the city will determine if the current law should change. In the meantime, residents should still avoid parking on city streets overnight or risk being ticketed.
The Villages of West Glen and the Enclaves at Country Lakes are currently piloting the program.
