NOTICE OF TRIAL TRAFFIC AND/OR PARKING MODIFICATIONS

 

Impacted Area: LINCOLN Ave. between AUSTIN and MASON, and MASON Ave. South of Lincoln.

Trial Period: November 1st, 2021 to April 30th 2022

In an effort to ensure ample parking for area residents as well as the safe and efficient flow of traffic through our community, Village personnel routinely review areas of the Village in order to recommend changes in traffic/parking restrictions where appropriate. Recently, as part of this review, it was determined that certain traffic regulations and accompanying signage along Lincoln Ave between Austin and Mason (south side of street) and on Mason Ave south of Lincoln (west side of street) will be altered to accommodate requests.

Specifically, additional street parking on the south side of Lincoln Ave. will be made available by removing the no parking sign in front of 5935 Lincoln (center of block). Parking will now be available from the center line of Mason Ave to a point 190 feet west. Additionally, this area as well as the west side of Mason Ave between Lincoln Ave and the first alley south of Lincoln will be restricted to parking for vehicles with a valid Morton Grove vehicle sticker only.

This trial is in response to requests from area residents for increased parking availability. This change has been discussed with the all Village Departments, and they agree that the change of signage is appropriate and does not compromise the safety of pedestrians or motorists.

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 180 days, from November 1st, 2021 to April 30th 2022, the Public Works Department will change the parking signs to match these regulations, and the Police Department will monitor the situation. Residents are encouraged to provide their feedback to the Village during this trial period.
