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.

The Village is challenging our residents to “light up our town” by decorating the outside of your home for the holidays! Add some sparkle and let your creativity flow! There are no rules other than to demonstrate your festive spirit. There is no need to apply either; our judges will begin driving through town after December 1 to select winners. Those selected as the best decorated home for the holidays will be recognized at a Board meeting and will receive a prize.


Holiday Food Drive at Village Hall

Please donate non-perishable food items to support the Leyden Township Food Pantry’s Holiday Food Drive. A drop-off box is located at Village Hall throughout the holiday season. Thank you for helping those in need during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays!



Franklin Avenue Improvement Project - January 23

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 23, from 4 - 6 PM at the Centre at North Park, located at 10040 Addison Avenue.

This meeting will continue the conversation from an initial public meeting held in June 2018.

This is the final opportunity for the public to provide written feedback on the project.

The Franklin Avenue Improvement Project will improve infrastructure, access and safety and reduce congestion along this important industrial corridor.

Quiet Zone Update

The Village has received verbal notification that we have been approved for a $975,000 Pedestrian Rail Safety Grant! The grant will fund a significant portion of the safety improvements needed at the pedestrian crossing at the Calwagner and 25th Street grade crossings and the Metra Station. Next, we will be working with Metra to design and construct the safety improvements. The Village will make street improvements including installing a median barrier at 25th and Ruby. Watch our Village newsletter for updates as we move closer to obtaining a Quite Zone Designation in Franklin Park! .



I hope your holiday season will be filled with joy, laughter and love. Holidays can also be a busy and sometimes even a stressful time. The Board and I want all our Franklin Park families to be especially careful on the roads this season. Holiday traffic can be treacherous. Watch for pedestrians crossing the street and drive carefully on snow or ice covered roads. Be extra vigilant in your travels and if you want to have some ‘Christmas Cheer’, call a cab, ride sharing service or a friend.

Please don’t forget that some in our community may be alone for the holidays or may not have as many blessings to count. Our local churches and Leyden Family Services sponsor food pantries, coat collections and toy drives. Consider donating items, money or time and spread the spirit of the holidays. Village Hall will be accepting canned and non-perishable food throughout the holiday season too. Remember a blessing shared is a blessing multiplied.


Learning From Each Other

What’s one of my favorite parts of being Mayor? Interacting with our young people! I joined Northlake Mayor Jeff Sherwin and Melrose Park Mayor Ron Serpico recently at Roy School. We were there to talk about our jobs as mayors and to hopefully impart some knowledge about civics and how local governments work to a classroom of 2nd graders. I want our families to know that our residents and our elected officials can work together to make a better, stronger and safer community for all.

The lessons I learn from these visits are invaluable. These young students are very aware of how our interactions with each other affect our quality of life. They have a kindness and concern for their fellow citizens. They worry when they hear about homelessness or hunger. They have concern for their environment and are committed to the health of the planet. Listening to our youth gives me pride and hope for our community, our country and our planet. That is a great holiday lesson for all of us. Have the happiest, healthiest and safest holidays! HO HO HO ,
