Avoid Street Flooding


We ask for your assistance in helping to avoid street flooding during prolonged periods of rain, like the ones we have been experiencing lately. Please do not blow or sweep your grass cuttings or seeds into the streets. They will clog the sewers and cause a back-up of standing water onto the street if there is a heavy rain. Instead, please sweep cuttings and seeds up and mulch them or bag them for removal.

Thank you for your cooperation on this matter

Summertime Fun at the Fest

Franklin Park Fest was a wonderful way to start our summer. Each year the Fest attracts more visitors and neighbors.  Our fantastic musical entertainment, the great selection of food vendors, the carnival and Family Fun Day drew big crowds.  Svengoolie was a Fest favorite for children of all ages. The vintage and unique railroad cars on display on Railroad Day attracted train enthusiasts from around the region.

NBC-5 Chicago chose Franklin Park as part of their ‘Make A Difference’ series. They broadcasted live from our Fest on Friday.  Fest goers were fascinated with the Storm Chaser and Storm Tracker trucks on-site. Throughout the week, NBC and Telemundo ran stories highlighting our Village, our heritage, our businesses, our citizens and our community spirit. They focused on our ‘Year of Giving’ promotion that encourages volunteerism.  It was great to be able to showcase our town and let NBC viewers discover what we already know- - Franklin Park is a great place to live, work and raise a family!

Sustaining Summer

  • Summers can bring sizzling heat and air conditioners not only use tons of energy but they take tons of our money as well.   Here are few hints that might help save your wallet and our planet.
  • Make sure that windows and doors seal tightly.  Be sure to latch your windows.  We want the hot air to stay out and the cooler air to stay in.  Check attic fans, fireplace flues and bath fans. 
  • Change your filters often. Your unit will run more efficiently.
  • Insulate your attic. This will save both cooling and heating costs.
  • Consider a Smart thermostat. You can pre-set times and temperature and even control remotely with an app.  This allows you to conserve energy when there is a temperature drop and you may not be at home.
  • LED light bulbs produce less heat. The bulbs last longer and produce light more efficiently.

Visit our website Sustainability Page for more information on rebates for energy efficiency upgrades available from local utilities.

STAY COOL!  STAY GREEN!
