Burnside

The Neighborhood Of Burnside

The Burnside triangle of 95th Street and the Illinois Central and Norfolk & Western railroad tracks once was a swampy section of Hyde Park, subdivided in 1887 by Col. W.W. Jacobs and named after Civil War Gen. Ambrose E. Burnside. In 1889, Burnside was annexed to the city and began its first wave of development with shops at 95th Street and Cottage Grove.

In 1915, the housing stock included small frame homes and several brick and frame two-flat buildings. Italians and Polish immigrants lived in boarding houses between 91st and 95th Streets, joining the original Hungarian settlers. Russians and Ukrainians found jobs at nearby mills by 1960. During the 1970s, Hispanics and African Americans became the dominant ethnic group. Chicago State University is nearby at 9501 S. King Drive.

Residential Parking Permits

Chicago’s Residential Parking Permit program is designed to restrict parking on designated residential streets during specified hours, except for the residents of that street, guests of the residents or those who provide a service to the residents. This program helps to ensure that residents of densely populated areas have reasonable access to parking near their residences. Cars parked in violation of this ordinance are ticketed.

The City of Chicago does not mess around. The city has a dillignet parking patrol staff that will ticket you if you are in a spot where a permit you don’t have is required. All spots that require permits are marked with white street signs. Please look out for them!

For more information, contact the city clerk at 312-744-6861 or email info@chicityclerk.com. We also recommend that you ask your Real Estate Agent, Leasing Agent, or Land Lord about parking permit requirements in your area.
