Rogers Park

Rogers Park Rogers Park is known for its diversity among people and housing. It is the northern gateway to the city for many. About 10 miles north of the Loop, on the border of Evanston, Rogers Park is bounded by Howard and Juneway Terrace, Ridge and Devon avenues and Lake Michigan and is nestled between Loyola and Northwestern universities, attracting many students.

In Rogers Park large courtyard buildings predominate near Sheridan Road. Residents are lured by the lake, eight beaches and affordable housing.

A high-rise construction ban stretching from Sheridan Road east to the lake has sparked an apartment rehab boom. Most buildings in the area are either low-rise or two- and three- flats. Several rental buildings have recently been purchased and renovated.

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 We also recommend that you ask your Real Estate Agent, Leasing Agent, or Land Lord about parking permit requirements in your area.
