Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
The annual fall leaf collection program offers property owners seven opportunities during the season to have their leaves picked up by the Village. Composting or using the leaves as garden mulch are great alternatives to raking.
Voters registered in suburban Cook County can cast an early ballot at Village Hall, 123 Madison St. Village Hall also is a grace period site for new registration for suburban Cook County residents.
Official hours for trick or treating are 3 to 7 p.m., on Halloween, Oct. 31. Parents are urged to accompany small children and drivers should take extra care.
The Village of Oak Park’s fresh take on television and online video programming took top honors from the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors at the organization’s October awards show.
Business supporters, owners and residents were on hand as Village officials and senior executives from the development and construction teams ceremoniously broke ground for the long-awaited redevelopment of the northeast corner of Lake Street and Forest Avenue.
With seasonal flu activity likely to begin in October and continue as late as May, public health officials say everyone older than 6 months should be vaccinated as soon as possible.
Oak Park will install 12 Divvy docking stations throughout the Village next year. Bikes will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year-round.
Pets are an important part of many households in Oak Park. Along with the companionship they provide come owner responsibilities to ensure the health and safety of the pet and the community.
A project to demonstrate the potential cost savings of electric smart grid technologies took a step closer to implementation in Oak Park with the hiring of an organization credited with creating the national model for smart grid project planning, implementation and management.
In addition to being the center of Oak Park’s municipal administration, Village Hall is historically significant in Oak Park’s efforts to achieve racial integration and community stabilization during the 1970s.
New projects are under development throughout the community, but the downtown area will be especially active. Parking and traffic will be affected as these and other major projects bring substantial investment to the Village.
With the new school year now underway, Oak Park police are urging motorists to stay alert — especially when driving in school zones. Police also have stepped up their presence near schools and along walking routes.
