Massage Establishments

Chapter 108 of the City Code of Highland Park requires all massage establishments operating within the City of Highland Park to obtain an annual Massage Establishment License through the City Clerk’s Office. 

The annual license fee is $50 on or before March 1 and $75 on or after March 2 of each consecutive year. No massage establishment may operate in the City after March 29, 2019 without first obtaining a massage establishment license. Operation of a massage establishment without first obtaining a Massage Establishment License from the City on or before March 29, 2019 may result in the issuance of citations and the City taking enforcement action against your business. The City Manager, or his or her designee, may conduct compliance checks in accordance with Section 108.025 of the City Code to ensure any massage establishment operating within the City is in compliance with the requirements of Ordinance O11-2019.
