Capital improvement residential mailings

Every year the Village of Oak Brook performs improvements on roads,
water main and infrastructure as a part of their capital improvement
program. Prior to the improvements starting, the village is required to
notify all residents that are directly and indirectly impacted by the
improvements.

In the past, the village scanned and copied a paper village address
map to highlight the addresses affected by the improvements. This proved
to be a tedious task as maps had to be created for each address. In
order to make this process run more smoothly, the Village asked for the
help of the GIS department.

Through the use of GIS, maps highlighting the addresses impacted by
the improvements were created. Residents that were primarily and
secondarily affected by the improvements were shown in different colors
with their address number and the latest aerial imagery. Residents that
were primarily affected were those address located adjacent to the
improvement site. Residents that lived in the general area of the
improvement site were classified as secondary. For 2010, residential
mailings have been sent for the paving, water main and crack sealing
projects.
