Commercial Filming

Highland Park City Code requires a permit for any commercial filming within city limits. Applications must be filed with the City Manager's Office no later than 10 business days prior to the start of filming. There is a non-refundable fee of $150 ($200 for a major film). Commercial filming hours are limited to 7AM to 7PM Monday through Friday and 9AM to 5PM on Saturday. Variations outside these established time frames require approval by the City Manager and possibly City Council. The City may also require three weeks advance notice for this type of request.
