Apply For Disabled Parking Sign





The residential disabled parking program provides eligible North Riverside residents the ability to secure reserved parking on public streets that is necessary and accessible to their permanent residences in order to reasonably accommodate physical restrictions from a proven disability.


  • The applicant must permanently reside at the residence where the sign is being requested.

  • The applicant must have either a valid disabled Illinois license plate or a permanent disabled placard issued by the Illinois Secretary of State and registered at the current North Riverside address.

  • The applicant must be able to clearly demonstrate a parking issue on the street by providing evidence that parking is not available within a reasonable distance from the residence without the approval of a reserved disabled parking space.
  • Only one residential disabled parking permit will be approved per NR residence.
  • Permitted residential disabled parking stickers are valid for 1 year and expire in accordance the Village's annual vehicle sticker deadline (currently September 30th).  Stickers must be permanently affixed to the lower corner of the designated vehicle’s driver side windshield and are not transferrable.
  • If approved, the Village will erect one permitted disabled parking sign for a reserved parking space to a maximum of 25 feet in front of the NR residence.
  • Each residential disabled parking space will be reserved only for vehicles that display a valid North Riverside disabled vehicle sticker matching the parking space’s applicable permit number.
