Downtown Oak Park has been recognized by the International Downtown Association as "Downtown of the Month" on the association's website for the month of April.
DTOP is the third organization to receive this recognition.
"When selecting Downtown of the Month we consider two major factors: commitment to best practices and diversity of organization," Kevin Moran, IDA communications and information services manager said in a news release. The mission of the International Downtown Association is to connect diverse practitioners who transform cities into healthy and vibrant places.
"Downtown Oak Park demonstrated a commitment to best practices through their programming and strategic collaborations. We also like to demonstrate that practitioners are doing great work in downtowns of all sizes, across North America (and beyond), and Oak Park is a great example of a smaller organization making a large impact."
