Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
Celebrate green living at the Village’s eighth annual Earth Fest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sat., April 22 at the Public Works Center. This year's highlights include a wide range of activities for kids and tours of the LEED Gold-certified Public Works Center.
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.
Twelve artists are needed to create murals that will continue the transformation of the railroad retaining walls along the Green Line corridor from dull, blank concrete into canvases.
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.
Mayor Anan Abu-Taleb selected lifelong Oak Parker and Township Trustee Jim Taglia to fill the trustee slot left vacant by the resignation of Adam Salzman. A Village Board vote on the selection is set for Monday night.
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.
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.
