Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
The Oak Park Police Department is working to raise public awareness of some common crimes of the season by offering the tips to help reduce the chances of becoming a victim.
When it comes to building a stronger community, funds from federal housing and development grants have a big impact in Oak Park. For Program Year 2018, which began in October, Oak Park received more than $1.8 million in federal CDBG and ESG funding.
The common practice of placing plastic bags in blue recycling carts drives up costs and drives down the value of the community's curbside recycling program. Clean plastic single-use bags should be returned to grocery stores and big-box retailers that collect them for proper recycling.
The annual fall leaf collection program for 2018 is scheduled for Oct. 15 through Dec. 6 with eight pickups planned for each section of the Village.
The Public Works Department is testing new LED lamps on four blocks in the community. Residents are invited to visit the test blocks and share their views on the different color ratings via an online survey.
Nearly 90 percent of all crime in Oak Park is against property, but armed robberies and vehicle hijackings do sometimes occur here. The best defense, Oak Park Police say, is to try to avoiding being an easy victim.
If someone calls or knocks on your door promising a better deal on electricity, proceed with caution. Enrollment for Oak Park’s municipal electricity aggregation program typically opens in the fall when notices are mailed to all eligible customers.
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.
Residents interested in really getting to know the details of their Oak Park properties have an online resource available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
An investment of about $30 for a detector can be the difference in life and death when it comes to deadly carbon monoxide, an odorless and tasteless gas that can leak from an appliance.
Pets are an important part of many households in Oak Park. Along with the companionship they provide come owner responsibilities to ensure the health and safety of the pet and the community.
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.
