Deborah"Not only does the HCV Program promote revenue, employment and housing, but family, community and opportunity. I am grateful to the staff and crew that helped to make a beautiful apartment from two small dingy spaces for my large family."

Housing Authority Elects Officers

The Oak Park Housing Authority elected its officers for 2002-2003 at its Annual Meeting held on September 10. The Commissioners elected Masaru Takiguchi as Chairman, Daniel Burke as Vice-Chairman, and Edy Burton as Secretary-Treasurer. In addition to the elected officers, Carol Blackman and Jeffrey Taren also serve as Commissioners. Commissioners of the Housing Authority are nominated to serve a five-year term by the Village President and are confirmed by the Village Trustees. Commissioners serve without financial compensation.

The Oak Park Housing Authority was chartered in 1946 as an Illinois municipal corporation. It currently administers various Federal housing programs that benefit the Village’s low-income residents. It owns and manages Mills Park Tower, a high-rise rental development at 1025 Pleasant Place serving the elderly. It also administers the Housing Choice Voucher Program in Oak Park, which serves low-income families, the elderly and the disabled.
