Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
Ten Oak Park restaurants received 2018 Johnson Awards in recognition for having the highest two-year average inspection scores. Named for Oak Park’s first lunchroom operated in the 1890s at 124 Lake St., this is the 32nd time the Johnson Awards have been presented.
Five individuals and one local non-profit organization have been honored with the Dr. William Fitzsimmons Public Health Award for their contributions to the health and well-being of Oak Parkers.
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.
Nominations are being sought for the Village's annual awards that recognize efforts by organizations, individuals and businesses to improve Oak Park through property preservation, sustainability and accessibility.
Oak Park’s efforts to make it quick, easy and cost-effective to get permits to install solar arrays have earned the Village gold status from the U.S. Department of Energy. Oak Park is one of only 84 communities in the country to earn gold status and the eighth in Illinois.
Village officials recently delivered 200 three-ounce jars of honey to the Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry. The donation came after about 50 pounds of honey was collected earlier this summer from the two bee hives installed this year at Village Hall.
A total of 33 vehicles were stopped in Oak Park and 25 citations were issued as part of the Oak Park Police Department's Click It or Ticket Labor Day safety campaign, which involved additional traffic safety details from Aug. 20 through Sept. 4.
Desplaines Valley Mosquito Abatement District trucks were back on Oak Park streets from about 9 p.m. to midnight on Thurs., Aug. 23, the third time this season crews have sprayed here for adult mosquitoes.
The buzz of nectar-gathering activity that began nearly two years ago at the Public Works Center has come to Village Hall with two honeybee hives on the small outdoor balcony above the south entrance at 123 Madison St.
The enrollment process has begun 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 12-month term of the agreement.
After more than 34 years with the Oak Park Police Department, Chief Anthony Ambrose says he will retire at the end of August.
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.
