Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
The many dimensions of Oak Park will be on display when the annual July 4th parade steps off at 10 a.m., Tues., July 4 from Longfellow Park at Ridgeland Avenue and Adams Street.
Oak Park residents are invited to join Police Chief Anthony Ambrose and key neighborhood resource officers in a wide ranging discussion focusing on community safety from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Thurs., July 6 in the Veterans Room of the Oak Park Library.
The sixth annual Oak Park Sculpture Walk is in full swing, with 12 sculptures on display in an outdoor exhibit along Harrison Street between Ridgeland Avenue and Austin Boulevard.
Every Oak Park resident who owns or leases a motor vehicle is required to purchase and display a Village sticker annually before July 15 to get the lowest rate. The rate increases by $20 after the deadline. Failure to display a valid Village sticker also could result in a $75 ticket.
When it comes to saving lives, every minute counts for the firefighter/paramedics responding to a 911 call. That’s why every ambulance and fire engine deployed by the Oak Park Fire Department is equipped to deliver advance life support (ALS) at the scene.
Village officials recently joined nearly 300 communities across the country in a pledge to create a healthy habitat that will aid monarch butterflies on their annual migration across the continent.
Warmer weather typically means construction, and this year is no different. Several projects are on the horizon in the coming months. The biggest project involves rebuilding Fillmore Street, which runs east-west across the entire south side of the Village.
In an annual rite of spring, the Oak Park Farmers’ Market opened its 42nd season Sat., May 20. Opening day featured seed-potting activities for children, as well as Go Green tables with information to help families live and garden in more environmentally friendly ways.
Buoyed by its successful participation in the first-ever Illinois Distracted Driving campaign last month, the Oak Park Police Department is planning additional efforts in the coming months to tackle the important safety issue.
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 enrollment process for the Village electric aggregation program begins this week with mailings to customers who already participate as well as those who might want to join the community program for the first time.
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.
