For Mills Park Tower Residents

Welcome to Mills Park Tower’s Resident Page. We are delighted that you have chosen our community as your home!

Mills Park Tower (MPT) provides  independent living in a maintenance-free environment. This allows you to devote your time and energy to pursuing your personal interests and spending time with other residents, family, and friends. We regularly sponsor programs and activities that help make community living both easy and enjoyable. Notices of these programs are posted on our community bulletin boards. We also regularly provide information on services and activities available to you through Oak Park Township Senior Services, the Oak Park Library, and the Park District of Oak Park.

Mills Park Tower is also located within walking distance to public transportation and Downtown Oak Park where you can find shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. We encourage you to explore and enjoy all that Oak Park has to offer.

Mills Park Tower Resident Council



Resident participation is vital in offering residents a way to build working relationships with the housing authority and create a positive living environment in Public Housing. One form resident participation can take is the resident council. The resident council can play a part in improving the quality of life for Public Housing communities and bring a wide variety of issues to the attention of PHA.
