Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
Oak Park police officers will be on the lookout for drivers distracted by cell phones as part of the first-ever Illinois Distracted Driving Awareness Week from April 24-28.
A new program made possible by a $2,000 grant from FM Global will help the Oak Park Fire Department raise awareness about the importance of having an operational smoke detector.
Four new bike shelters located near the CTA Blue and Green lines each feature a Fixit station, which includes all of the tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance, from changing a flat to adjusting brakes.
The Village Board is conducting a comprehensive review of Oak Park’s wide array of parking rules and regulations. Public meetings are planned to discuss a variety of topics.
A new ordinance adopted by the Village Board designates the community as a welcoming Village where citizenship or immigration status would not be factor in any interaction between individuals and municipal employees.
At Your Door Service goes into effect Jan. 1 and includes at-home pickup of unwanted electronics such as televisions, fax machines and printers and common hazardous household waste such as garden chemicals, automotive fluids and paint products.
In addition to paying at any parking meter or pay-by-space lot in the Village, residents and visitors now can also use the same convenient and easy-to-use Passport Parking app to secure an overnight on-street parking pass.
Like it or not, coyotes are a permanent fixture in Oak Park. But just seeing a coyote does not necessarily mean a dangerous situation for humans or domestic animals, officials say.
Pets are an important part of many households in Oak Park. Along with the companionship they provide come owner responsibilities to ensure the health and safety of the pet and the community.
A one-inch rainfall on a 1,000-square-foot roof can send 600 gallons of water into the sewer system. Disconnecting gutters can help reduce backups.
The Oak Park Police Department is more prepared than ever to assist citizens experiencing an overdose caused by heroin or prescription pain relievers now that officers are equipped with Naloxone, a fast-acting drug that can save the life of an overdose victim.
The Village of Oak Park encourages block parties as a way to build community spirit, meet neighbors and have fun. Each block may sponsor two block parties per year, but since some weekends fill quickly, plan early to get preferred dates.
