On Monday, April 27, 2020 the Highland Park City Council approved the elimination of vehicle sticker sales and enforcement and all associated fees and penalties effective immediately. The City Council approved an ordinance which repealed Chapter 74 of the City Code. The measure is intended to provide relief to all residents and business owners in light of the economic impact of COVID-19. The action also provides operational efficiencies for the City.
For 2019-2020, the cost per passenger vehicle sticker was $55. Motor vehicle stickers not purchased by October 1 were subject to a late penalty fee of $10, which has also been eliminated. The City will not reimburse residents and businesses for already purchased stickers.
Vehicle stickers have been used for identification of resident vehicles. Vehicle stickers double as parking permits for beach access in Highland Park. If beaches are reopened following the COVID-19 public health concerns, 2020 parking stickers will remain valid for the summer 2020 season. New residents and residents who have purchased new vehicles may contact the Park District for 2020 vehicle stickers, free of charge. Please call 847.831.3810 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. The Park District of Highland Park will explore ways to validate residency for beach access in the 2021 season. The Highland Park Police Department will continue to enforce parking restrictions.
