Economic Development and Planning


Oak Park may be well-established, but it has a brand new plan for the future.

Oak Park is a vibrant, diverse community. Its location – 10 minutes from 4 freeways – makes Oak Park a prime location for any company looking to do work around the region. A committed Economic Development Department is helping to make it stronger as a place to live, work, and do business.

The dedicated Economic Development staff works with new and current business owners from conception through development to meet business timelines, provide market research data, site selection, and site plan process and provide the best customer service from beginning to end. In 2015, Oak Park voters passed the law to allow for class “C” liquor licenses to become available in our community for the first time. With over 20 licenses available at a minimal cost, it is an amazing opportunity for new restaurants to locate in Oak Park.
