North Garage Maintenance Work Begins June 15, No Daily Fee Parking Spaces for Duration of Project

Necessary maintenance work for the North Garage, located at the northwest corner of Miner Street and Arlington Heights Road, will begin June 15 and is expected to be completed by the end of July, 2015. This maintenance work is part of a "Parking Garage Rehabilitation Program" approved by the Village Board earlier this year for Village-owned Parking Garages.

During this project, there will be NO Daily Fee parking spaces available in the North Garage. There will be limited permit parking available in the garage, but will be on a first-come, first-serve basis in order to best accommodate merchant parking, and parking for Downtown residents, commuters and shoppers.

The maintenance work being done to the North Garage and all Village-owned garages will eliminate deficiencies in the structures, which, if left unchecked, could lead to future, more extensive/costly repairs. This work will be phased in at various times over the next few years, which will result in improving the structural integrity of the Village's garages.

During the work in the North Garage, ALL permit users (residents, merchants, and commuters) will still be allowed to utilize the garage. However, since parking will affect both the 4th floor (top) and 3rd floor, available parking spaces will be limited.

Additionally, as of June 15, the "Commuter only, no resident parking" area on the 1st floor will be permanently changed to allow parking for ALL permit users, and it will no longer be designated only for commuters

Due to the fluidity of the necessary construction, locations of available parking spaces in the North Garage may be changing on a daily basis. Since there will be no Daily Fee parking in the garage, permit users will be allowed to utilize the 4th floor (top at various times during construction.

Informational and directional signs will be placed in the North Garage to assist parkers. For the duration of this project, please allow additional time in locating available parking. Refer to the parking map for locations of other garages and parking lots.
