Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
The enrollment process is underway for a new electricity aggregation contract that will ensure participants never pay more than the ComEd energy rate and provides support for solar energy generation during the 24-month term of the agreement.
Much-needed improvements to the pedestrian bridge over the Eisenhower Expressway at Home Avenue will require closing the popular walkway for the entire month of September. The bridge has remained essentially unchanged since it was built in about 1957.
As the Labor Day holiday approaches and Illinois residents mark the end of summer with celebrations, the Oak Park Police Department will join law enforcement agencies throughout the state in cracking down on impaired, unbuckled and distracted drivers.
With the start of a new school year, Police are stepping up enforcement efforts to protect the many students who walk and bicycle along community streets to and from neighborhood schools.
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.
The Oak Park Fire Department is opening an additional line of communication with the community by launching a new Facebook page. Valuable safety tips and information related to Fire Department initiatives will be regularly shared on the page.
Oak Park Police are embracing principles to eliminate racial tension by building mutual trust. The principles include commitments to value life, reject discrimination, support diversity in the police profession and develop relationships at the street and leadership levels.
In addition to parades and fireworks, summer means getting together with good friends and good food outside. Making sure your grill is operated safely and food is handled correctly is important to preventing accidents and foodbourne illnesses.
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.
Oak Parkers are about to be challenged to step up their recycling game as new, stricter cart contamination rules go into effect on May 6. After a warning, carts will not be emptied until the contaminants are removed by the resident – ideally by the next weekly collection cycle.
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.
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.
