The Oak Park Board of Trustees has approved spending $25,000 on decorative banners to be hung from the 34 new light poles in the Oak Park Arts District along Harrison Street.

Last year, business owners asked the village to put the brakes on a plan to spend $57,000 to hire a consultant to study Harrison Street, requesting instead that they be allowed to find a better use.

Laura Maychruk, owner of Buzz Café, 905 S. Lombard Ave., said the district previously had banners designed and painted by local artists. They plan again to solicit the work of local artists for the new banners.

She said they aim to have the banners up May.
