Going Solar Will Save Money on Utility Bills

The Grow Solar Chicagoland program, supported by the Citizens Utility Board, aims to make solar power more accessible and affordable to communities like ours, even if you can’t install solar on your own roof. People have generally experienced a 10% to 20% reduction in electricity utility bills per month through the community solar program!

Groups of residents enter into an agreement (subscribe) to help fund solar panel construction. Then a utility installs, runs, and maintains solar panels somewhere in Franklin Park’s “Utility Service Area”. Everyone who subscribed then gets credits towards electricity bills equal to the solar panel’s output.

For more information on the program and how to participate visit:

Quiet Zone Update

Despite COVID-related setbacks, Metra was able to complete their pedestrian safety improvements. The Village has also completed street improvements including installing delineators down the centerline of the roads at 25th and Ruby.

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has approved a permit for the Village of River Grove to install lane delineators on River Road and Thatcher Road. The expectation is that construction will begin this summer and should be completed in the fall of 2022. When this safety improvement project is complete, the Village of Franklin Park and the Village of River Grove will file jointly for a Quiet Zone designation.

The Village is in regular contact with River Grove regarding updates on their progress. Please watch our Village newsletter for updates on this important project.

World Honey Bee Day – Protecting Our Food Supply and Our Planet

The Village will celebrate World Honey Bee Day on Saturday August 20 by hosting an informative and fun-filled community event. The day will focus on building awareness of the importance of preserving the health and habitat of the honey bee. The honey bee is an essential pollinator which is crucial to protecting the world’s food supply. We rely on bees and other pollinators to protect our food systems and each day one out of every three foods we consume relies on pollination.

Over the last decade, experts have reported a severe decline in bee populations which has been blamed on the rampant use of pesticides, industrial farming techniques, and climate change. If bees and other pollinators are at risk, the entire food production system is at risk, and so are we. Without bees, the availability and diversity of fresh produce would decline substantially, and human nutrition would likely suffer. 

Please join us Saturday, August 20 from 10 AM to 2 PM at Hammill Square to learn more about how bees are the cornerstone of our food system and how they benefit people, plants, and the environment. There will be informational vendors, games, giveaways, and a demonstration of how honey is extracted from an active beehive. You can also sample honey from the Village’s beehives installed on the rooftop of the Water Department Garage.

Suicide Crisis Hotline 988 Announced

The challenging events of the last two years have made us all more aware of how critical it is to take care of our mental health.

An increase in suicide, along with substance abuse, have helped to foster a mental health crisis across the country. In response to this growing crisis, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).and various state resources are supporting the new 988 Suicide and Crisis Resolution Hotline.

This nationwide phone number, previously known as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, connects callers directly to a counselor with the training to assist people in crisis. Too many people experience suicidal thoughts or mental health-related distress with nowhere to turn for help. Reaching out for help through the 988 system will deliver the support and care needed.

To help prepare for a forecasted rise in demand, the federal government has made a significant investment in the network by dedicating $432 million, up from $24 million, toward building the capacity of local and backup call centers and providing associated services, including a subnetwork for Spanish speakers.
