The repairs and painting was needed, as it poorly reflected on the neighborhood. That maintenance was appreciated. However, the green/black plastic screening which is usually placed on a metal fence t...

So I have been doing my research on Park Ridge mayoral candidates and found that one of the candidates — Lucas Fuksa — is a commercial real estate attorney which raised a whole bunch of red flags. I have dug up with some highly concerning information and feel the need to share. It appears that Lucas Fuksa has some wealthy developer donors to his campaign whom he will be beholden to if he is ele...

Many residents don't seem to know that the City of Park Ridge has commissioned a storm water survey for the residents. Many of our neighborhoods are plagued by flooding. But thus far, only 136 residents have completed the survey! Please do so: it's very important. And if you have parents or grandparents who don't use...

Hi Everyone! We are considering moving to Park Ridge and wanted to get feedback on the kindergarten - do they have full day programs? We both work so this is something I am looking into when looking at neighborhoods. I am going to do some research on the side as well, but wanted to reach out to this group first to see if you had any...

We would always put them to bed so it's pretty much hanging out here while they're asleep Perfect for high school/college student. We are in Elk Grove Village though so it would have to be somebody wh...

We just moved to a new neighborhood a week ago in Park Ridge. I'm thinking we should introduce ourselves to our neighbors. Do people still do that?
