NORTH AURORA – New parking restrictions will be in place at Schneider Elementary School when school is back in session later this month.
North Aurora village trustees approved the restrictions at their meeting Monday. The school’s first full day of school is Aug. 20, and signs will be posted notifying people of the new restrictions.
“We can get the signs ordered and put in place before school starts,” North Aurora Police Chief David Summer told trustees.
Summer said the new restrictions are needed because of the school’s growing population. The school has been operating under the same parking plan since 2009.
“Though this plan has worked well, times have changed,” Summer told trustees. “The school enrollment is up approximately 100 students from the previous year of nearly 500 students.”
As part of the restrictions, no parking will be allowed from 7 to 9 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. from the northeast corner of Chestnut Street and Banbury Road, continuing north to the south boundary line of the North Aurora Care Center property, 310 Banbury Road, when school is in session.
On the west side of Banbury, 15-minute parking will be allowed only between 1 and 3 p.m. near the school, and drop off will be allowed only between 7 and 9 a.m. near the school.
On the north side of Dee Road, drop off will be allowed only between 7 and 9 a.m. and pick up between 1 and 3 p.m., near the school.
