Veterans Day Event – November 11

The Village of Franklin Park and the American Legion Post 974 will host their annual Veterans Day observance on Thursday, November 11 at 11 AM at the Village’s Veterans Memorial, located west of Village Hall. The program will pay tribute to military veterans who have served our country and will include recognition of the new names to be added to the Monument. Face masks and social distancing will be required.


COVID Update

Beginning August 23, the Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) will mandate that masks will again be required in all public indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. This action is required due to the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant. Safety precautions should again be followed for individuals over the age of two in public places such as restaurants, retail stores, fitness clubs, public transportation and movie theaters, as well as multi-unit residential buildings and other public (indoor) places.

Quiet Zone Update

The Village is in the final stages of applying to secure a Train Horn Quiet Zone with the Village of River Grove. Completion of the pedestrian safety improvements will allow the two Villages to qualify for the Quiet Zone. Since fall of 2020, METRA has been working to construct the required safety improvements which include upgrading crossing equipment technology at Scott Street, a new pedestrian crossing at the Rose Street grade crossing, installing new gates at the Calwagner pedestrian grade crossing and shifting the pedestrian grade crossing at the Metra depot.

Unfortunately, METRA has informed the Village that due to COVID-related setbacks, they will not be able to complete their work this summer as expected and have extended their estimated completion date to late October. The Village is proceeding with making street improvements including installing plastic delineators down the centerline of the roads at 25th and Ruby. Please watch our Village newsletter for updates on this important project.

Put Home Safety First

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire. That catastrophic event changed the way cities plan and develop and the way buildings and homes are constructed. The Great Chicago Fire, which occurred in October of 1871, has shaped fire safety policy and awareness. That is why October has been designated as Fire Safety Month. 

The theme for this year’s Fire Safety Month is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety.” The sound of a working fire alarm saves lives. Three out of five home fire deaths are in homes without or with a non-working smoke detector. Sadly, these deaths could have been prevented.

In Franklin Park, your safety is our highest priority. I am pleased to announce that our Village was selected by the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance to be part of a critical effort to ensure working smoke alarms are installed in every home. In support of the program, Illinois-based First Alert has donated 100, 10-year, sealed lithium battery smoke detectors to the Franklin Park Fire Department. In partnership with the State Fire Marshall, our Fire Department has launched a program to perform a Life Safety inspection of your home and will soon begin installing free smoke detectors in as many bedrooms and hallways as possible.     

To participate in this program please call (847) 678-2400 or email us at As part of this program, the Fire Department will provide information about your detectors, a Home Fire Safety Checklist, and an Escape Plan pamphlet for your use. 

There are many tools to increase fire safety. Testing your smoke detector often, replacing the batteries in your alarm, or upgrading to sealed battery alarms are important steps to protect your home and family. Also make sure you have a working fire extinguisher on every floor and that everyone in the household knows how to operate it. It is also vital that you discuss fire safety with your family and develop a family escape plan.

Always make sure to put safety first!

Enjoy the fall weather,


Mayor Barrett Pedersen
