With funding support from the OPRF Community Foundation, the Oak Park Development Corporation (OPDC) is rolling out a green businesses initiative to encourage sustainability related investments that align with the goals of the PlanIt Green community sustainability plan and help improve a participant’s bottom line. The year-long program, scheduled to begin in mid-January, will include 20 businesses from Oak Park and River Forest that are interested in making green improvements, but have not made significant steps towards sustainability to date. The program has four core components:
- Pre and post-sustainability audits
- Retrofit and energy efficiency upgrade products and incentives
- Business-focused educational seminars
