The City of Oak Park Planning Department developed a City Master Plan that would create a clear set of objectives and provide direction for development and enhancement of the City over the next five years. Areas of focus include land use, community facilities, recreation, complete streets, and priority development sites.

The City worked closely with the general public, City staff, the Recreation Department, the Oak Park Library, Planning Commission and the City Council to develop the City Master Plan Draft.

The draft of the plan is now complete, and the City will host a Town Hall Meeting to present the results of the plan and give the community an opportunity to provide input.  Join us at City Hall on Tuesday, January 31 from 5-7 p.m.  To preview the plan please click here.
