Employee Parking Permits

Permit Parking Only SignThe Village designates several parking areas in commercial districts for use by employees of area businesses. Permits for employee parking lots (PDF) can be purchased in person at Village Hall for $10 and are good for one year (July 1 to June 30).


Employees are required to provide the following documentation in order to receive a permit:

  • Completed signed employee parking permit application
  • Proof of employment (including a paycheck stub dated within the last 60 days, items mailed to the applicant at a Winnetka business address within the last 60 days, or a letter from the employer on company letterhead listing all current employees. Business cards or name tags are not sufficient proof of employment).

The purchase of a permit does not guarantee that a spot will be available in the most convenient location. Employers have the option of sending the Village a list of all employees on their company letterhead and a completed employee parking permit application for each employee. The Village will then process these permits together.


Business Employee Parking Permits expire on June 30th annually and new applications should be completed prior to July 1. Individuals serving as residential caretakers or nannies are not eligible to purchase this form of parking pass.
