April 18, 2022 - The Oak Park Health Department is seeking community input as it creates the five-year strategic IPLAN that will be the foundation for public health services and programs available to people who live, work, play and go to school in Oak Park.
Oak Parkers who share their input via a survey at www.oak-park.us/IPLANsurvey also can enter a drawing for a $50 gift card that can be redeemed at 60 Oak Park retailers and restaurants in the downtown area.
As a state-certified health department, the Oak Park Health Department must complete a community health assessment and strategic (IPLAN) every five years that serves as a guide to the public health initiatives and programming.
Community members have a vital role in this process, and have many opportunities to provide input at local events and meetings throughout the spring and summer.
The Department also is working closely with community partners including Oak Park Township, River Forest Township, Rush Hospital and Oak Park Township’s Community Mental Health Board to create and implement the IPLAN.
The Health Department provides services like animal licensing and control, health education, restaurant inspections, connections to local health care systems, emergency preparedness management and response, and communicable infection and disease prevention.
