Oak Park public health officials are encouraging residents to learn about the leading cause of death for both men and women as part of American Heart Month this February. Eating healthy and staying active are among the recommended ways to prevent the disease.
A two-inch snowfall can trigger parking restrictions if conditions warrant. To find out when snow-related parking restrictions are in effect, call 708.358.7669 for a recorded message. In the meantime, please reduce speed and drive carefully in poor weather conditions.
Ground was officially broken Feb. 10 at 801 S. Oak Park Ave. for a mixed‐use transit‐oriented development that will provide 37 high-quality affordable apartments and approximately 1,000 square feet of commercial space.
By adding electric vehicles to its municipal fleet and expanding the number of public charging stations, Oak Park is bolstering its reputation as a green community known for its commitment to environmental sustainability.
If you spot tree trimming crews out and about in Oak Park this winter, don't fret - they are following a carefully planned schedule to ensure the long-term health of the village's tree canopy.
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.
Marijuana became legal for recreational use in Illinois on Jan. 1. The new state law allows consumers 21 and older to possess and use marijuana products purchased from licensed sellers without a medical marijuana card.
Helping homeowners pay for needed repairs they otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford is what the Village’s single-family rehab loan program is all about.
The Village is partnering with the Oak Park Township, Oak Park Library and Park District of Oak Park on a new dementia-friendly initiative with the goal of having Oak Park designated as a Dementia Friendly Community by the non-profit organization Dementia Friendly America.
More than 60 individuals, organizations and businesses were recognized at the Village of Oak Park's annual community awards ceremony December 11 at Village Hall.
Opioid abuse has touched virtually every community, including Oak Park. The Oak Park Department of Public Health has joined agencies across the state in adopting and promoting programs to help prevent opioid abuse.
Oak Parkers interested in reducing the amount of organic material sent to landfills can sign up for the Village's composting program and receive a discount in the process.
