Vehicle Sticker Renewals


Renewal applications for the Village’s 2022- 2023 vehicle sticker were mailed in May. Every vehicle registered to a Franklin Park resident needs a vehicle sticker including cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc. Passenger car stickers cost $30. Seniors receive one free vehicle sticker per household. Owners of electric vehicles receive a free vehicle sticker and hybrid vehicles pay a reduced rate of $15. If you purchased a new vehicle or just moved to Franklin Park, we will need a copy of the plate registration showing your Franklin Park address and payment for the type of vehicle. .

To renew online: https://www.green-pay.us/TMAV-VPAY/fp/home.html

You can renew via mail or by using the Village Hall parking lot drop box. You can also renew at Village Hall on Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 4:30 PM. If possible, please do not wait until the last minute to renew because this could cause a processing back-up and a long wait to receive your sticker. Stickers must be displayed by June 30. If you have questions, please call (847) 671-4800 

This year’s vehicle sticker was designed by Jonathon Gonzalez, an art student at East Leyden High School and graphically depicts a community that is strong and united.

The Village is requesting that homeowners complete a survey to determine how many lead service lines are still in use in the Village with the goal of eventually replacing them. It will ask you to identify the type of material used in your water service. Instructions on how to identify the material of your water service are included in the informational brochure.

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.

Solar Panels Save Money and Save the Planet

Lessening our dependence on fossil fuels is one of the best ways we can thwart climate change. Using alternative energy sources including installing solar panels can help us do just that.

Worried about rising energy costs? Solar panels can make a significant difference in lowering your energy bill, especially during summertime. Long sunny days produce lots of solar power that can be used to keep your house cool.

Residents throughout Cook County are now eligible to participate in Grow Solar Chicagoland, a volume purchasing program that is designed to make installing solar energy more accessible and affordable. The program, sponsored by Cook County, the Citizens Utility Board, and the Midwest Renewable Energy Association, provides education and customer preparedness so that installation is quicker and more economical.

Interested residential and commercial property owners will also receive a free solar site assessment along with cost estimates. The potential customers will then be able to make their decision without obligation.

We are pleased to announce that the Village of Franklin Park will host two “Solar Power Hours.” Join us to learn about the benefits and incentives of going solar, and how it can become more affordable through the group buy program.  A Grow Solar presenter will walk you through the basics of solar energy and will explain how you can save money with rebates and incentives.

There are two options to participate in the FREE educational Solar Power Hours:

In-person Presentation on Wednesday, July 13 at 6:30 PM in the Community Room at the Police Station (no registration required)

Online Webinar on Tuesday, August 2 at 11 AM – (Registration required: register through our website, a link will be provided when you register)

If you have been interested in reducing your carbon footprint and think solar may be of interest, I urge you to participate in the Solar Power Hour sessions to explore the program. Going solar will help you save the Earth and save money at the same time.
