Temporary Disability Parking Placard

Temporary Disability Parking Placards are available at the Village Hall. In accordance to the Secretary of State Temporary Placards (red) are issued to persons with a temporary disability or in the third trimester of pregnancy (no more than 90 days) and are valid for the length of time indicated by the certifying physician, not to exceed six months if issued by the Secretary of State or up to 90 days if issued by a local municipality, and DO NOT exempt the holder from parking meter fees and time limitations.

As a convenience to Glendale Heights residents, the Village has added this public service to assist those in need of temporary parking placards. Temporary Disability Parking Placards are now available through the Finance Department during the Village's normal business hours. In order to obtain a Temporary Disability Parking Placard, you must return the "Persons with Disability Certification" form signed by your physician. Forms are available at the Finance counter or you may download a form by visiting the Secretary of the State's website.
