Good Neighbor Access Permit

Consistent with the Park District’s Good Neighbor Guidelines:
Contractors or neighbors who want access to cross District land to get to private property for a short period of time (one day to one week) may apply for an Access Permit through the Maintenance Division. [Good Neighbor Guidelines, EBRPD Board Resolution 1993-4-82]

Requests to perform work on Park District land, or to access Park District land for more than one week will need to apply for an Temporary Access Permit.

The review period is two weeks. The review period begins when a complete application is submitted. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Turnaround time is typically 2-3 weeks for a Good Neighbor Access Permit dependent upon availability, impact to the park, and volume of requests.
