Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
Oak Park is turning its focus to the problem of food waste, with residents invited to an upcoming film screening and workshop as part of the community’s Food Waste Awareness Week from November 3-9.
Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States, and throughout November the Village’s Public Health Department is promoting healthy living choices that can help stave off the disease as part of American Diabetes Month.
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 slow down and drive carefully.
When severe weather creates debris from trees on private property, owners are reminded not to bring limbs or brush to the curb, but make other arrangements for its disposal.
Residents selected at random are being invited to participate in a community survey to help policy makers better understand priorities for government action and citizen opinions on quality of life and public services. Responses can be submitted by mail or online.
The annual fall leaf collection program for 2019 is scheduled for Oct. 21 through Dec. 12 with eight pickups planned for each section of the Village.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fresh off the launch of a new online tool for citizens to upload videos that might help solve neighborhood crimes, Police are taking the next logical step — urging citizens to register their cameras and help create a community-wide network.
