Mayor Barrett Pedersen, Trustees and Village staff held a ribbon cutting in June, 2017, to welcome Starbucks to Franklin Park. The popular international coffee retailer moved into a recently-constructed 2,500 SF building at 2800 Mannheim Road, on the northwest corner of Grand and Mannheim. The new retail facility features a drive-thru, an outdoor patio, a bright and spacious interior and nitro cold brew coffee on tap. The new Starbucks is located on a former BP gas station site, which was remediated by the property owner in 2009. 



The Village is pleased to welcome T-Mobile to Franklin Park. Mayor Barrett Pedersen, Trustees and Village staff held a ribbon cutting to celebrate the business's new facility at 2926 N. Mannheim Road, Unit 3. At their grand opening event, T-Mobile invited employees to shave their heads to raise money for Franklin Park children fighting cancer through the St. Baldrick's Foundation. T-Mobile's brand new space is part of a three-unit, 6,000 SF commercial development recently constructed by Glazier Corporation.

Let’s get out those lights and make Franklin Park sparkle!

Village Leaf Removal Information

Please put leaves in brown biodegradable bags only and place them near your trash and recycling for pick-up. Bags can be purchased at local grocery and hardware stores. Leaves cannot be picked-up if they are placed in plastic bags or in the street. Do not put or blow leaves into the street. It clogs the street sweepers and sewers and causes unnecessary flooding and maintenance costs. Also, burning leaves is not permitted in Franklin Park.

Fall is a great time to mulch your leaves to sprinkle over plants and shrubs to help retain water and protect them over the long winter months. You can also skip the raking and simply mow over your leaves a few times and leave them on your lawn to add nutrients and provide protection from winter weather. The Department of Public Works will sweep Village curbs through late November. Please check signs on your block for parking restrictions. For more information, call 847-671-8252.

A Season of Giving

It’s hard to believe that another holiday season is upon us! It is a season of family, friends and celebration. I look forward every year to lighting the tree in Hammill Square and singing Christmas carols with the families who attend this festive event. I hope this holiday season you will consider brightening the lives of others who may not be as fortunate as we are.

There are many ways to spread holiday, cheer like donating to the Leyden Family Services Food Pantry. Throughout the season, Village Hall will be accepting donations of canned or non-perishable packaged food for the Leyden Food Pantry. Also, we have partnered with our friends at Meal on Wheels to collect cold weather accessories for seniors in need.

Please stop by Village Hall and bring new socks, scarves, gloves, hats, ear muffs and blankets which will be distributed when meals are delivered throughout the holiday season. Remember that there are some among us who are without family in our community. There is no better time to demonstrate your goodwill by visiting an elderly neighbor or a lonely hospitalized veteran.

This holiday season, please take the time to share the true spirit of Christmas. When we share our blessings, they are multiplied.

Make Franklin Park Sparkle and Glow Bright

Don’t forget to display your creativity by decorating your home or business for the season. Our Trustees will be scouting the neighborhoods looking for the most festive and fun homes for our Holiday Decorating Contest. You can also call my office at 847-671-8236 to let us know you want your home considered for the contest. Winners will be selected the week before Christmas and recognized at a January Board meeting.

On behalf of the Village Board, I wish you a joyous holiday season, filled with friends, family, health, love and laughter.
