No. Village Ordinance prohibits the parking of any vehicle on any Village Street between the hours of 2:00am - 6:00am.
We understand that there are specific circumstances where it is not always possible to
park a vehicle off the street. The Kenilworth Police Department grants overnight
parking permission to vehicles when these situations arise. Examples such as home
construction or overnight guests where there is no more room in the driveway are
Kenilworth has 3 parking areas designated for commuter use. They require a Kenilworth Train Parking permit. Permits are available quarterly and annually. Sorry, we currently do not offer daily parking permits. Permits are purchased from the Village Hall. For questions or pricing please contact the Kenilworth Village Hall at 251-1666.
Kenilworth residents do not need a train permit as your current Village Vehicle Sticker allows access to train parking areas.
If you wish to contest a parking ticket, you must come in person to the Kenilworth Police Department and request the ticket be assigned a court date. You will then be issued a court date at the Cook County Circuit Court in Skokie where you will appear before the presiding judge to contest the ticket.
All court date requests must be made in person within 10 days of issuance of the citation.
If a parking ticket is not paid within 10 days of its issuance, a penalty fee will be imposed and in most cases is equal to the original fine amount. A late notice will then be sent, advising you of the tickets status. If payment is not received within 30 days of the late notice, the ticket will be sent in for collection.
In addition, the Village has the option to send a letter to the Secretary of State requesting a drivers license suspension and even seek a warrant or additional processes.
The fine on a parking ticket I just received is much higher than a fine on a previous parking ticket. Why is that?
Parking tickets issued by the Kenilworth Police Department work on a sliding scale to
target habitual offenders. As the amount of tickets you receive within a one year
period increase, the fines increase to the next offense level. The levels are as
Note: Handicapped Parking Violations are not effected by this sliding scale. All handicapped parking violations are $100.00 with a $50.00 late fee.
Parking sign requests are received regularly and each one is reviewed individually on its own merits. The proper deployment of parking signs is a critical component of the Village’s parking philosophy/plan. An improperly placed sign can create a hazardous situation, be confusing to motorists, or may simply displace rather than correct a problem. By comprehensively assessing each request we hope to effectively address the existing problem and to minimize other undesired consequences.
It is important to the Board of Trustees and the Village staff that we be responsive to the concerns of our residents. Processing requests for new or different parking signs is a service facilitated by the Chief of Police. Evaluating parking restriction changes is a multi-stepped process that will typically flow through the following steps:
Residents considering a parking restriction change are encouraged to contact the Police Chief, John Petersen, to discuss the proposed change and to review the steps of the process.

“No Parking” signs are
generally posted directly in front of large scale construction site projects.
This restricted zone serves to provide an area for active loading
and unloading of construction materials/equipment while allowing for the orderly
flow of vehicular traffic. (While
this restriction may displace 3-4 worker vehicles; an orderly flow of traffic,
as well as emergency vehicle access, is maintained.)
As needed, on street parking may
need to be limited to one side of the street.
This restriction will be based upon the width of the street, traffic flow
and safety concerns. This restriction will generally be posted on the opposite
side of the street from the project site and will be limited to construction
Newly posted restrictions will be
posted on green high visibility temporary signs for a minimum of 7 days.
Based on the duration of the project (and weathering) these signs may be
replaced with standard red-on-white signs.
Parking and ordinance enforcement
generally begins with an educational component that may include verbal/written
warnings. Citations will be
issued to subsequent or ongoing violations.
As needed, Stop Work orders are issued through the Village office.
As needed, additional “No
Parking” zones may be authorized to facilitate usually bulky deliveries or
other special needs such as the disconnection/connection to underground
utilities, etc. Such requests should
