Parking Permits

Residential Parking Permits

Residents who would like to acquire a Residential Parking Permit, to park on their street only, may do so through the Finance Department. To obtain a permit, residents must have a current vehicle license sticker.  A separate form must be completed for each vehicle. The sticker is free of charge and valid now through December 31, 2024. To check if you are required to display a Residential Parking Permit, please visit the Wilmette Community Portal.  If required, under Property Attributes, you will find “L,” “M,” “N” or “P” listed as the Parking Zone.

Residents who reside on streets with permit parking may also acquire temporary visitor parking permits.  Temporary permits are valid for one day at a time and are available through the Finance Department in packs of seven at no charge.  Proof of residency is required to obtain the temporary passes.
