Curbside Service

Restaurants and merchants who wish to establish curbside service can utilize a public parking space to execute efficient operations. Each business may reserve one parking space near its front door (a regular space, not ADA) for “curbside pick-up only.” This will ensure customers have a convenient place to park and helps advertise the curbside service. Traffic cones may be used to reserve a space.

A-Frame and Other Types of Temporary Sign Regulation

City Code requires the issuance of a permit for the use of A-Frame signs as outlined in the A-Frame Sign Permit Information. Such a permit is required for continuing use of a sign which requires an annual permit. Other types of signage, A-Frame or other style, in use to advertise curbside service, direct vehicular movement, control pedestrian movement, promote social distancing, control gatherings or recommend health and safety practices in furtherance of Restore IL and DCEO guidelines, may be used until regular occupancies are restored and/or the City moves into Restore IL Phase 5.
