Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
By shopping at the Oak Park Farmers’ Market, customers support local farmers and small businesses from the Midwest while helping cut down on the pollution and energy costs of shipping produce long distances.
The Village’s Public Health Department is participating in Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October by sharing information about local resources available to help fight the disease.
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 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.
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.
The Village of Oak Park is taking part in National Preparedness Month throughout September and encouraging residents to be “prepared, not scared” in the event of an emergency.
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.
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.
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.
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.
