Residency/Proof of Residency

Residents living within the boundaries of the Park District regularly support park facilities and programs through property taxes. People living with the boundaries of the Urbana and Champaign Park Districts pay the "resident R" fees. Acceptable documents that prove current residency include: utility bill, homeowner's or auto insurance bill, cable bill, bank statement, vehicle registration, or voter registration card. If in doubt about whether your document is acceptable, ask a staff person. Call 367-1544. See also reciprocal agreement on this page. The Urbana Park District has established a nonresident fee system in order to equalize payments by individuals residing outside of the Park District boundaries, so they will contribute to the overall financing of the park system on an equitable basis with residents. The Urbana Park District offers three options for nonresident program fees:
1. Individuals may pay double the resident fee.
2. Individuals residing immediately adjacent to Urbana Park District boundaries have the option of annexing their property into the district. For more information, call 367-1536.
3. Purchase an Urbana Park District annual park membership. This fee is computed based on the assessed value of the participant's property using the current Urbana Park District tax rate. The membership fee for rented properties is $100 per year. Ask a Phillips Recreation staff member for additional information. These memberships do not qualify you as a resident for purposes of Urbana Indoor Aquatic Center Memberships.
