The Chicago City Clerk’s office will sell City Vehicle Stickers at my 49th Ward Service Office (7356 N. Greenview) on Saturday, June 17, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There is no additional fee for this convenience.
Property owners also can stop by at the same time this Saturday to get a free small tree to plant in their yard or property. The 50 trees are available on a first-come first-served basis, provided free through the generosity of TruGreen and the Arbor Day Foundation.
As you know, City Vehicle Sticker sales have transitioned to a year-round calendar. Please note that you can purchase a city sticker at this event only if your city sticker expires in June or July. Senior citizens age 65 and older as of the start date of their new city sticker are exempt from the year-round sales program and will continue to renew on an annual, June-to-June schedule. The cost for a senior Chicago City Vehicle Sticker is $30.59.
Please note that as of July 1, 2016, there is no longer any grace period for the purchase and display of vehicle stickers. Motorists may receive tickets immediately following their vehicle sticker’s expiration. Failure to purchase and display the new City Vehicle Sticker by the expiration date could result in a $200 ticket and an additional purchasing late fee.
The price of a City Vehicle Sticker depends on the type of vehicle you own. Passenger, large passenger, small truck, large truck, motorcycle, and antique Chicago City Vehicle Stickers are assigned varying prices. The Chicago City Clerk’s office provides a chart with a list of prices of city stickers for vehicles by weight. Click on “Vehicle Sticker Type Prices.”
Those living in residential permit parking Zone 56 have the option to add the zone to their City Sticker for an additional $25. Also, Zone 56 residents may purchase daily residential guest parking permits at this event, regardless of whether your city sticker expiration date.
Please bring your City Vehicle Sticker renewal form. If you do not have your renewal form, you must bring one of the following documents to verify your vehicle identification number (VIN):
- State vehicle registration card, or
- Vehicle title, or
- insurance card displaying your VIN.
If you are a senior citizen, make sure to bring your driver’s license for proof of birth date to receive the senior discount. If you are purchasing a Chicago City Vehicle Sticker on behalf of a senior citizen, please bring that person’s driver’s license.
The Clerk’s Office will only accept checks, money orders and credit cards. NO cash payments will be accepted.
Keep in mind that even if your vehicle is registered in the suburbs or out-of-state, you may need to purchase a Chicago City Vehicle Sticker.
In addition, 50 free trees, courtesy of TruGreen, will be available for the first 50 households that want them and can plant them on private property, one per person. Trees may not be planted on the parkway. If you want a parkway tree please reply to this email or call my office at 773-338-5796.
This is first come first serve! The trees are approximately 3-4′ tall, and are species on the City’s approved planting list. You do not need to have purchased a City vehicle sticker to receive a tree. Trees will be available at Saturday’s event ONLY. Thank you for making Rogers Park a safer and more beautiful place to live.
