Housing Vision for Oak Park Public Meeting

Come share thoughts and ideas about what should comprise Oak Park’s housing vision for the next decade during a public meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thurs., Jan. 25 at the Oak Park Public Library Veterans Room, 834 Lake St.

Participants will be asked to weigh in on what housing or housing-related challenges they see in the community, and their ideas on how to address them.

The Village has partnered with the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus to update the Homes for a Changing Region Plan it prepared in 2012. Since Oak Park in 2024 is in many ways different from Oak Park in 2012, fresh eyes, perspectives and ideas are needed.

The public meeting will include simple snacks and beverages, along with a kids’ table. 

This meeting follows the public meeting on housing held last September, and organizers hope for a similarly diverse and engaged roomful of participants.
