• Small Business Survey

  • Each month we will feature a new business survey to gather input from business people about a current business-related issue in the community.  Results and analysis from previous surveys will be displayed as well.

  • Sorry - we removed the November 12 Facade Grant survey following some difficult cuts that had to be made in the 2018 Village of Oak Park budget (per the November 13 Village Board meeting).  

    While some of our members had hoped for a robust, rich program, the proposed grant program - like many nice-to-haves in the 2018 budget - had to be cut to keep the tax levy down for businesses and residents alike.  We expect there to be a small, pilot program for facade grants in 2018 that could inform a larger pool in later years.  When we know more about the 2018 program and eligibility requirements, we will let you know.

    In the meantime, if you have any concerns - or ideas as to how our community can best support small business - please let us know.  Email us at info@oprfchamber.org or call the Chamber at 708.613.0550. 



    Results from earlier surveys will be saved here in PDF form.  Click on title to access results.
