The City of Batavia has an overnight parking ordinance that prohibits parking on all City streets between the hours of 1:00 AM and 6:00 AM. Realizing that there are situations when citizens may need a temporary exemption, a process has been developed for residents to request a permit.
Residents seeking a permit for three nights or less for a typical passenger car or pickup truck are encouraged to complete the electronic overnight permit application. For additional time or special circumstances, please call the Police Department at 630-454-2500. To apply for the permit, we require the vehicle's license plate number, the location in Batavia where it will be parked, and contact information for the person who is responsible for the vehicle.
In general, the city owns and maintains the trees in the parkway. Trees are inspected and pruned when necessary during the winter months. We ask that residents help out by watering the trees when they are new or during drought conditions. If there is a problem with a tree in the parkway, please call the Public Properties and Services Division at 630-454-2400.
The city has a Parkway Tree Program that allows residents to request the planting of new trees in the parkway in front of their residence. The city offers several different varieties of trees each year, and the cost of the tree is split 50/50 between the city and the homeowner.
If you would like to plant a tree on your own in the parkway, or if you need to remove a tree in the parkway, you will need a permit from the city.
