Planning a remodel? Go online

Oak Park property owners planning a fall project can get the permitting process underway online at The online system offers users an intuitive, widget-driven website portal for conducting a wide range of property related Village business via a computer, tablet or mobile telephone.

The software solution links multiple Village databases and streamlines and automates information processing. A key user-friendly aspect of the system is its ability to provide real-time information as a permit submittal moves through the review and approval processes.

The system also allows contractors and DIY property owners to register with the Village and update permit submittal materials. And when fees are due, payment will be accepted via credit card through the VillageView portal. The range of services offered by VillageView is expected to grow as more databases are created in the effort to offer citizens a 24-hour Village Hall.
