Consider Natural Lawn Care

Is it possible to have a lawn that looks good without using herbicides and insecticides that can harm your family’s health and the environment? The answer is yes. Unlike conventional lawn care, which relies on chemical fertilizers and pesticides to artificially green your lawn, Natural Lawn Care focuses on restoring balance to the soil system, including nutrients that make a lawn healthy. Over time, your lawn will become naturally healthy, green and beautiful, with the added bonus that it will require less watering, fertilizing and mowing, saving you time and money!

To learn more about this easy to follow system of taking care of your lawn without the chemicals, go to midwestpesticideaction.org and check out the NLC Calendar Fact Sheet.


Schedule Your Garage Sale

Thinking of doing some spring cleaning? Now is the time to plan your garage sale! Franklin Park residents must register with the Village to hold a garage sale. Please contact the Clerk’s Office at 847-671-8242. There is no cost to register.

Street Sweeping Begins

Beginning April 1st street sweeping will begin throughout the Village. Residents should check their street signs for the day and times. Please remember that signs are posted at the beginning of each block and apply to the entire block for which they are posted.

Yard Waste Pick-up Begins in April

Yard waste placed in brown biodegradable bags and put out on garbage day with recycling will be picked up starting in early April. Bags can be purchased at local grocery and hardware stores. Residents can select alternatives to bagging yard waste such as mulching mowers, leaf shredders or backyard compost piles to help you and the Village to save money!

Branch Pick-up Schedule

Please place all reasonably-sized branches where you put your trash by 7 AM on Monday of the pick-up week. Branches will be picked-up sometime by the end of Friday. Pick-up dates for 2015 are April 6 & 20, May 4 & 18, June 1, 15 & 29, July 13 & 27, August 10 & 24, September 8 & 21, October 5 & 19 and November 2.

Throw an Energy Impact House Party

Mayor Barrett Pedersen hosted an Energy Impact House Party recently and was joined by friends and neighbors for an energy loss demonstration. A certified contractor conducted the energy audit of the home and identified where energy was being wasted or lost. For a limited time, residents can schedule to host a House Party and receive a full energy assessment, valued at $400, for free! Participants are not required to sign up for services.

Train Horn Quiet Zone Update

The Citizens Advisory Board (CAB) on Train Horn Quiet Zones met for the first time on December 17. The CAB discussed the potential options for safety improvements necessary to obtain quiet zone designation from Scott Street to Thatcher Avenue. Engineers provided the CAB with data on the current risk index of all the crossings and which improvements would bring the risk down to a level sufficient for approval. A brief report on the progress of the proposed Train Horn Quiet Zone is now available as a link on the homepage's left-hand column and will be regularly updated. You may also click here to read the update.

The Business of Franklin Park is Business

It was my great pleasure to host nearly 200 businesses and civic partners at our annual Business Appreciation Luncheon on March 27. Each year, we thank our business community for choosing to locate, expand, invest and prosper in our Village.

Without business and the revenue they bring to our Village, Franklin Park could not perform its core functions. Residential property taxes would skyrocket if they were the sole source to protect our public health and safety, keep our Village clean and our streets, sewers and infrastructure in working order.

That is why it has been a priority of my administration to develop policies and programs that keep jobs and investment IN Franklin Park.

We are have made it easy to do business in Franklin Park. The Village has updated our website to improve access to real time information on permitting, zoning, and economic development incentives. We work with new and existing businesses to identify available properties in town. If a business wants to expand, we want them to do it here, and our Community Development Department will help a business to find space.
