The Village of Park Forest, in an ongoing effort to communicate with residents most effectively, implemented a Neighborhood Meeting Program in 2004. Different from traditional Board Meetings, where residents visit Village Hall to dialogue with elected officials and staff, Neighborhood Meetings bring those individuals to residents in their respective sections of town.
Since 2004, a Neighborhood Meeting has been held in each section of Park Forest to allow residents to have their voices heard and questions answered. Residents in attendance at a Neighborhood Meeting receive updates specific to that neighborhood from the village manager, mayor, and Park Forest leadership. Attendees are also provided information on upcoming events, recent developments, and plans for the future of Park Forest.
Input from citizens assists the Board and staff with the decision-making process by better understanding the needs of Park Forest residents.

Please note that neighborhood meetings are intended for residents of the specified area only. Residents who live in the neighborhoods where the upcoming meetings will be held will receive information about it in the mail ahead of time.
