The Appearance Commission meets the fourth Wednesday of every month and has jurisdiction over the exterior appearance of all new construction, additions to single-family homes and multi-family dwellings, commercial and institutional structures, to assure their appearance meets community standards. The majority of its members are architects. 

The O’Hare Airport Commission provides a forum for public discussion and serves as an advocate for reasonable sound and environmental levels associated with flights flying to and from O'Hare Airport over Park Ridge.  The Commission conducts research; educates the public; and advocates for improvements. The Commission meets the third Wednesday, every other month.
