Construction of the new 317-space parking garage continues on schedule and foundation work has begun. Over the next few weeks crews will continue excavation, framing and pouring for the foundation footings. The north and east lines are almost completed (see photo). This schedule is dependent upon favorable weather conditions.
Visit the project website for additional information and to view copies of the Customer and Employee Parking Maps.
Customers First: The Village's Customer First parking policy is designed to protect and ensure the success of our downtown businesses. Businesses are asked to please help educate employees where they can park. The Employee Parking Map is available on the project website. Parking in lesser utilized areas is encouraged, including:
- the east parking lot of Cook Apartments (southwest corner Cook Av & First St by posted signs) 8am-6pm Monday-Friday,
- the eastern portion of the Newberry Ave lot,
- the lower level of the Lake Street Parking Structure (employees only during day, available to customers after 5pm), and
- the downtown Metra lot which becomes available for free to employees/customers after 5pm and on weekends (only paying commuters during day).
If an employer/landlord does not provide private parking for employees, employees of the downtown must park in designated employee parking areas with a employee hangtag displayed. Hangtags can be purchased at the Libertyville Police Department, 200 E Cook Av (847-362-8310).
Thank You! Your patience during construction is appreciated. Please know that at the end of construction a new source of parking will be available.
