Village is Distributing Tree Saplings

The Village is offering free saplings to residents. The saplings include oaks and other varieties of trees that are individually potted. The saplings are 2-to 4-feet-tall, depending on the species. Andy Smolen who is a certified Arborist is available to assist residents to select the best place to plant a sapling to accommodate growth of the maturing tree, and to provide detailed care instructions. There is no limit to the benefits that trees, especially oak trees, provide to our region. Trees provide rain absorption and a canopy that reduces city heat island effects. If you would like a sapling, contact Andy Smolen at asmolen@vofp.com or at 847-708-2963.


Village Study of the Crystal Creek Floodplain Complete

On May 5th the Village of Franklin Park held an open house to announce the findings and recommendations of the recently completed study of the Crystal Creek Watershed floodplain limits. As a result of this study, we expect the floodplain limits to be substantially reduced, and it is anticipated that the majority of properties within the Crystal Creek floodplain in Franklin Park will be removed from the currently adopted floodplain. Removal of a parcel or building from the 100-year floodplain could relieve the property owner of the requirement of purchasing costly flood insurance.

Visit the Engineering Department’s Floodplain Information webpage to learn more and to preview the findings.

Good Neighbors Make Safer Neighborhoods

I am pleased to announce our Franklin Park’s Neighborhood Watch Program. This is a crime prevention partnership that assists law enforcement in keeping our families safe and our neighborhoods secure.

We are seeking the active participation of our citizens, who we already know are good neighbors, to work with our Police Department to reduce crime. The program is based upon neighbors helping neighbors, neighbors getting to know each other and then working together to keep our community safe. The Police Department will host meetings to train Watch members to recognize and report suspicious activities and to teach them on how to use crime prevention strategies to prevent crimes in our neighborhoods.

This important program forges bonds among residents, fosters community friendships and reduces crime by building stronger relations between law enforcement and our residents.

Block Captains Will Be Direct Link to the Police

Neighborhood Watch is fundamental to safeguarding our community and maintaining our family-friendly neighborhoods. Not only are we seeking members, but we are recruiting Block Captains who will serve as the voice of their community to the Police Department.

Quarterly meetings will be held with the Director of Police and local law enforcement to give you updates on local issues and offer information on the latest crime prevention initiatives and policing techniques from our Police Department and law enforcement agencies across the country. These interesting meetings will also provide a forum to discuss how Franklin Park can continue to be a safe community.

Telephone Town Hall – June 22

I will host our next Telephone Town Hall Meeting on June 22 at 6:30 PM to discuss or Neighborhood Watch Program. Our Director of Police Mike Witz will join me on the call. Details for the call are on our Homepage. I hope you will join us on the call and be a part of this important new initiative in our Village.
