Parking Regulations

The Village of Glen Ellyn has parking regulations for the Village as a whole, and regulations specific to the central business district.  These regulations are meant to ensure the safety of individuals within the Village, as well as provide for an orderly and usable parking system.  The Village of Glen Ellyn’s Police Department is responsible for monitoring parking within the Village.  General parking regulations and central business district parking regulations are found below.

Central Business District Parking Regulations:
The focus of the Village of Glen Ellyn’s parking regulations in the Central Business District is twofold. First, to ensure that short-term parking intended for customers is not used by commuters or merchants, and second, that users pay the appropriate fees for their desired parking services.  The Downtown Glen Ellyn Parking Brochure provides information regarding parking options along with a detailed map to assist patrons in parking in the downtown area.

General Parking Regulations:
Generally, free street parking is available throughout the day, but may be restricted under the following conditions. There may be exceptions to this list such as to avoid conflict with other traffic, or when you are complying with the directions of a police officer or traffic control device:

  • On a sidewalk.
  • In front of a public or private driveway.
  • Within an intersection.
  • On a crosswalk.
  • Within twenty feet of the driveway entrance to a fire station and, on the opposite side of the street, within seventy five feet of said fire station entrance when properly signposted.
  • At any place where official signs prohibit stopping, standing or parking.
  • Parking is not permitted overnight on Village streets from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. If you do park on the street overnight, your car may be ticketed. Exceptions can be made for special circumstances by contacting the Police Department at 630-469-1187.
  • No parking is allowed on Village streets after two or more inches of snow has fallen, until the streets have been plowed.
