EPA Grant to Fund Assessment in Brownfield Sites in Western Suburbs


The EPA has awarded a $600,000 grant to Cook County and a coalition of seven western suburbs, including Franklin Park to assess potentially contaminated properties and their redevelopment potential.

"Intergovernmental cooperation and collaboration allows us to work together to leverage grant funding that we may not be able to secure on our own," stated Franklin Park Mayor Barrett Pedersen. "This grant will help to address environmental issues that hinder redevelopment and to ultimately attract new investment to our community."

The County’s Department of Environmental Control has begun working with coalition member communities on next steps.

Leaf Pick-up and Street Sweeping


Place leaves in brown biodegradable bags only and put them out on garbage day with your recycling for pick-up. Bags are available for purchase at local grocery and hardware stores. Leaves cannot be picked-up if they are placed in plastic bags or in the street. Pick-up continues until early December. In addition, yard waste bags will only be picked up through December 5. These dates are established by Allied Waste.

The Department of Public Works will sweep Village curbs through late November. Please check signs on your block for parking restrictions.

Governor Quinn Grants $5.3 Million Low Interest Loan for Water System Upgrades


We were pleased to have Governor Pat Quinn visit Franklin Park recently to announce that the Village of Franklin Park will receive an Illinois Clean Water Initiative loan to facilitate making much needed water infrastructure improvements.
 
The low interest loan allows us to make the upgrades now before the system deteriorates further and at a much lower cost to the taxpayers. These repairs will continue to make Franklin Park a great place to raise a family and an attractive location for business investment and job creation.
 
The Clean Water Initiative loan will be used to construct approximately 4,500 feet of 16-inch diameter transmission mains between the Main Pump Station on W. Belmont Avenue to the King Street Pump Station. Also included in the project is the replacement of approximately 174,000 feet of old and deteriorating 4-inch and 6-inch diameter water mains with an 8-inch diameter water main in the Rueter and West Mannheim residential areas. Additional work includes water main replacement and rehabilitation within the Cullerton Industrial Area.

FAA Declines Study on Airplane Noise


I am deeply disappointed that the FAA has declined to conduct a new Environmental Impact Study on the noise and pollution effects of the new runway configuration. The study was requested by Congressmen Quigley, Duckworth and Schakowsky in response to the surge in noise complaints in the last year.

Since the opening of the new runway last October, Franklin Park along with other communities adjacent to the airport, have endured unprecedented levels of noise and pollution.

I will continue to advocate with our Congressional delegation, the State of Illinois and the City of Chicago’s Department of Aviation for more funding for sound insulation, additional noise monitors, and a change in the decibel level regulations in order to protect our community.

Additionally, we will continue to fight for a more equitable distribution of air traffic patterns to provide relief to our residents.

I urge you to continue to register EVERY complaint of noise, disturbances and pollution to 1-800-435-9569. You may also file an on-line complaint and get more information on this website.

I promise we will continue to work vigorously to resolve this problem.
