A revitalization plan for North Ave. (Austin to Harlem) is now underway. The more we hear from those who live near/utilize North Ave. (Austin to Harlem), the better the plan will be. So please share your views in this online survey:  

If you own/manage/work at a North Ave. organization, there's a special survey for you.  Someone will stop by and ask you to complete it on Friday, August 17th between 10 am and 2 pm.  Please contact to take the survey at another time.


THE NORTH AVENUE DISTRICT (T-NAD) is working for revitalization of North Avenue from Austin to Harlem. Please join our Facebook group and the conversation.


OAK PARK  (Zone 1 is bounded by North Ave., Ridgeland, Chicago Ave. and Austin Blvd.  Zone 2 is bounded by North Ave., Harlem, Chicago Ave., and Ridgeland)

  • In both Zone 1 and Zone 2, June crime was up month-to-month, but down relative to June 2017 and YTD.  Zone 1 YTD incidents fell a particularly substantial 44%.

Thanks for your interest, and enjoy the rest of your summer!
