    Hi, Tesla owners and other EV owners and enthusiasts.

    Please note that the Village of Oak Park, IL, offers free parking to for all 100% electric vehicles; owners need not be residents to avail themselves of this benefit. While a local Electric Vehicle Permit is required, it is free and must be applied for in-person at our Village Hall. Permits are valid for one year and the program is scheduled to sunset December 31, 2012. For more information, please direct inquiries to our Parking Service Department at 708.358.7275.

    As you may know, Oak Park is a vibrant entertainment, shopping, and dining destination with convenient access to CTA rail and Metra. Drive your Tesla or other EV to Oak Park, park for free, and enjoy the many Oak Park attractions, or simply use Oak Park as a jumping off point for a downtown Chicago adventure by transit.

    Safe travels, everyone -

    The obvious question is if there is charging available there.

    Maybe, maybe not. I just think it's pretty cool that -
