Building & Property Standards

The Permit Processing Division (formerly the Building & Property Standards Department) is responsible for ensuring that the buildings, structures and properties within Oak Park are constructed, improved and preserved with regard to safety of life and property.

Division staff enforce the Village’s Housing Code and property maintenance ordinances through several inspection and permit programs. Staff also mitigates emergency hazards, including arranging for board-ups or other temporary measures necessary to expedite abatement of nuisances and hazardous conditions. Costs incurred for emergency services typically are billed to the property owner.
