NOTICE OF PARKING MODIFICATIONS

 

Impacted Area: 7000 and 7100 blocks of Simpson Street, Palma Avenue and Foster Street and 9400 and 9500 blocks of Sayre Avenue

Trial Period: August 10, 2018 to September 9, 2018

In an effort to ensure the safe and efficient flow of traffic through the community and/or provide for right-of-way maintenance or appropriate use of Village streets, Village personnel routinely monitor and review areas of the Village in order to recommend changes in traffic restrictions/regulations where appropriate. Recently, as part of this review, the Zone 12 special permit parking restrictions were evaluated. Zone 12 parking restrictions restrict parking between 8:00a.m and 10:00a.m. at the locations in the following table:

Street Between Side Of Street
Foster St. Centerline of Sayre Ave. and centerline of Marion Ave. Both
Palma Ln. Centerline of Sayre Ave. west and centerline of Marion Ave. South
Palma Ln. 117 feet west of the centerline of Sayre Ave. west and centerline of Marion Ave. North
Sayre Ave Centerline of Golf Rd. and centerline of Palma Ln. West
Sayre Ave Centerline of Golf Rd. and 97 feet north of the centerline of Palma Ln. East
Sayre Ave 237 feet south of the centerline of Palma Ln. and the centerline of Wilson Terr. West
Sayre Ave 118 feet south of the centerline of Wilson Terr. East
Simpson St. Centerline of Sayre Ave. and 899 feet west of the centerline of Sayre Ave. South

Village staff believes the parking restrictions were enacted in or around 1993 to discourage employees of nearby Golf Road businesses in Glenview from parking on the residential streets in Morton Grove. The Golf Road businesses in Glenview have been wholly redeveloped. Village staff believes the redeveloped area supplies the parking demands of these businesses and that the need for Zone 12 parking restrictions no longer exists. In response to resident requests and to further evaluate the effect to on-street parking patterns, the Village will take actions to temporarily suspend the Zone 12 parking restrictions within the above referenced area.

Municipal Code Section 5-1-4 authorizes the Police Chief (with approval from the Village Administrator) to make temporary changes to Village traffic regulations for the purpose of determining the appropriateness of permanent changes. Therefore, for a period of 30 days, from August 10, 2018 to September 9, 2018, the Village will eliminate the Zone 12 parking restriction, and the Police Department will monitor the situation. Residents and businesses are encouraged to provide their feedback to the Village during this trial period.
