Visitors to the Oak Park Hemingway District — yeah, the ones who park at metered spots and leave their cars there all day — you’re on notice.

That’s because the Oak Park Board of Trustees has limited the time to three hours before parkers are required to move along.

“The goal is to create turnover in the existing parking spaces that are metered between Ontario (on the north), Pleasant (on the south), Kenilworth (on the west) and Euclid (on the east). Approximately 245 metered parking spaces would be included in the 3-hour limit,” according to the village.

The goal is to make parking more readily available for shoppers and visitors. The upgrade is expected to cost approximately $15,000.
