Save a trip to Village Hall -
Get your Garage Sale permit directly from the web!
To make certain that the residential garage sale concept is preserved, the Village requires that groups or individuals who plan to hold such a sale obtain a free permit before it begins. The permits can be obtained at the Building Division on the second floor of the Village Hall, or you can simply print out the form below once you have submitted it (no visit to VH necessary).
The Village recognizes that garage sales are a suburban tradition. They're a good way to get rid of no longer needed stuff, and to raise funds for worthy causes. However, they must not be conducted at the expense or inconvenience of neighbors or the community at large. Mount Prospect's garage sale ordinance and the required free permit are intended to guard against the conduct of such sales as a business enterprise. The following are general restrictions adopted by the Village regarding garage sales. For more information, please call 870-5675, Option #2 (TDD: 392-6064).
No more than three sales are permitted per calendar year by any group or individual, with at least 30 days between each sale.
A sale may last no longer than three days, with a rain date the following weekend.
Signs must be removed on the last day of the sale.
Please be sure to include a rain date on your permit.
A $25 fine will be imposed for each day a sale operator is in violation of the Village ordinance governing garage sales.
