Check for any changes and additions to the schedule of games and events at CUBS.com. And please sign up for Ald. Pawar’s weekly email newsletter at www.chicago47.org to get the latest updates.

To receive the LV2 passes you MUST bring:

Proof of Residence (REQUIRED): A valid Driver’s License or State ID showing a home address within the LV2 area is sufficient.  If you do not have this, you can provide any government issued photo ID AND a current lease, recent utility bill, OR other document listing your address in the LV2 area (see “How to Prove Residency” link for additional options here).  By providing this info, you qualify for the Permanent Guest Pass (a.k.a. “Nanny Pass”) as well as Daily Guest Passes.  Please note that Daily Guest Passes can only be used once (remember to write in the date!) and additional passes can be requested later in the season by bringing back your pink receipt or providing proof of residence.

If you have a vehicle, please provide your Chicago City Sticker Number and License Plate Number. The City Sticker number is located directly under the bar code. By providing this information, you will also receive a Decal Sticker for the 2019 season.  When affixed to the windshield above your City Sticker, the Decal Sticker works for the entire season. Note that motorcycles are exempt from LV2 parking restrictions.  And don’t forget to remove any decal stickers from previous seasons.

Requirements for BUSINESSES in the LV2 Zone

Businesses located within the LV2 area are eligible to receive Permanent Guest Passes and/or Daily Guest Passes. To apply, the business owner or manager must email to ernie@chicago47.org a request on company letterhead that lists each employee’s name, the make & model of the vehicle, and the license plate number. Then you will get a reply to come pick up a packet of the passes at the 47th Ward Office. A copy of a valid lease or business license can also be provided to fulfill the proof of address requirement.  If your business would like to request Daily Guest Passes, you must explain the reasoning and how many you are requesting; use the schedule of night games and events as a basis for estimating the number of passes you’re requesting.  If any Decal Stickers are requested for employees, you must provide the City Sticker number and confirm that the parking zone space on the sticker says “NONE.”

As a reminder, per section 9-68-020 of the Chicago Municipal Code, all parking passes may not be transferred, purchased, or sold (from other than the City or an agent of the City).  Violators are subject to a fine of up to $500.
