Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
By taking a brief online survey at www.oak-park.us/speedsurvey, residents can help a citizen commission craft recommendations for improving internet service in the community.
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.
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.
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.
A new hybrid street crossing signal is now operating on Chicago Avenue at Harvey Avenue to improve safety for both pedestrians and bicyclists crossing the heavily traveled roadway.
Residents are urged to move their cars from the streets when temporary no-parking signs go up to allow private contractors to prune parkway trees quickly and safely as the winter trimming cycle continues through mid-April.
Michael T. Charley has been named permanent Director of the Oak Park Department of Public Health. Charley oversees an operation that is one of only four state-certified municipal health departments in suburban Cook County.
Oak Park Police are stepping up patrols in cars, on foot and on bicycles through New Year’s Day to combat the crimes of opportunity that traditionally rise during the holiday season.
When measurable snowfall is in the forecast, residents are urged to be prepared should the snow emergency parking rules be implemented and parking restricted to give plows room to work.
More than 70 individuals, organizations and businesses were recognized at the Village of Oak Park's annual community awards ceremony Dec. 7 at the Nineteenth Century Club.
The Oak Park Police Department is working to raise public awareness of some common crimes of the season by offering tips to help reduce the chances of becoming a victim.
When temperatures plunge, residents are urged to exercise caution if outdoors, and to check in on friends and neighbors. Warming centers are open at local hospitals, Township Senior Services and Village Hall.
