Monthly Overnight Parking Permits for Downtown Residents

The Village has a parking permit program to assist Downtown Arlington Heights residents that do not have adequate parking in their buildings. This program does not apply to buildings that have existing parking agreements with the Village. 

The number of permits available is limited so only one permit can be purchased per household. Permits will be issued for the Vail Avenue Garage only. Permits cost $50.00 per month and can be purchased on either a monthly or quarterly basis. Permits will be sold on a first come first serve basis. 

Please read the rules below for this permit program and be prepared to provide the information required at the time of permit purchase.
