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.
