Who is a Joliet Park District
Did you know that not all City of Joliet residents are Joliet Park District residents? Based on formal action by the Joliet Park District Board of Commissioners, a Joliet Park District resident is described as a person whose legal domicile is within the boundaries of the District. Residency is the principal place of habitation of the individual occupying the home, apartment, condominium or estate. It shall be the principal yearly residence for the family residing at the location.
The resident must be able to produce a valid driver’s license and a current property tax bill or utility bill verifying residency at that location. Individuals who reside in rental property within the Joliet Park District boundaries are considered Joliet Park District residents.
