Construction of the Maple Street Lofts mixed-use development in downtown Mount Prospect will impact the availability of the Maple Street Commuter Parking Lot. The Village of Mount Prospect would like to ensure that commuters are aware of all of the parking options available to them.

Closing of the north half of the Maple Street Lot Begins June 1, 2019. Alternative parking is available to commuters in the interim while the Maple Street Parking Deck is being constructed.


Mount Prospect commuters that use the Maple Street Parking Lot may park via permit or daily fee in:

• South portion of the Maple Street Lot

• Lions Park Parking Lot

• On-street along the north side of E. Prospect Ave.

These lots/spaces are restricted to Mount Prospect residents only.

Additional commuter parking options include:

• Emerson Street Parking Deck, between Village Hall and the library, offers 50 permit-only parking spaces for Mount Prospect residents at a reduced fee (valid at Emerson Street Deck only; out-of-town commuters are permit-only at full fee
