West Urbana Neighborhood Residential Parking Zone
The zone was established by city ordinance in 1975 to deter commuter parking on residential streets near the University of Illinois campus. Restricting parking helps residents who have difficulty parking near their own residences in areas where off-street parking is not adequate. Parking in the zone is restricted to residents, or their guests, between the hours of 3:00 am and 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Restrictions do not apply on Saturday and Sunday.
Annual Parking Permit Year
The annual parking permit year is August 1st of the current year to August 14th of the following year.
Who can get residential permits
The zone is bounded by Green Street, Race Street, Florida Avenue and Lincoln Avenue and you must live within those boundaries to apply for permits. To obtain permits, please bring in proof of residency, a photo I.D. and current vehicle registration at the time of application.
