Burke, of CBBEL - the Village's Engineering firm, presented the Village Council with his findings after a complete study of the combined sewer system within the jurisdiction was conducted. The presentation provided an in-depth history and analysis of community-wide flooding, causes and effects, as well as solutions and estimated costs.

The Village of Forest Park recently unveiled a five year infrastructure plan for the Village. Using the sales tax revenue from the successful referendum passed in March the Village hopes to do as much as $1,000,000.00 of work per year. The plan was created after an in depth study of the community including alleys, streets, and sidewalks. Maps have been created that detail the work that must be completed in the coming years and can be viewed here.
This year the Village is preparing to do a significant street patching program as well as some alleys and the annual 50/50 sidewalk program. In addition, the Village will commission a detailed study of the sewer system which will result in comprehensive inventory of the current system and will allow for a phased-in approach to the eventual separation of storm and sanitary sewer lines.
2015 will see the reconstruction of Madison Street west of Desplaines and a complete resurface of the street from Harlem Avenue to Van Buren.
In the coming years, look for modernization of Roosevelt Road, a continuation of the alley reconstruction program, and significant water main improvements.
We have been able to perform more than $25,000,000.00 worth of improvements since 2005 and we have plans for many more improvements over the next several years, thanks to the voters who approved the referendums (2004 & 2014) supporting a sales tax increase, and enabling us to establish the Village Improvement Program (VIP) dedicated to infrastructure initiatives.
