Village board seeking citizen advisors

The Village Board is seeking volunteers to help inform and guide policy decisions. Oak Park’s citizen boards, commissions and committees focus on a wide range of important areas and issues, often creating the public record that leads to important long-term board decisions.

Most bodies meet monthly. A varied group of volunteers is sought to represent the Village’s diversity, and renters as well as homeowners are encouraged to apply. Some commissions require special skills or training, while others just need citizens willing to give a little of their time to the community.

The Disability Access Commission and Building Codes Advisory Commission are currently in need of volunteers, but openings occur regularly on other commissions as well.
