The Department of Community Preservation and Development’s Environmental Health Division is staffed by two state-licensed health practitioners who advise and inspect food service establishments on health and sanitation standards. 

The Environmental Health Division operates on a yearly cycle of food establishment inspections.  Depending on risk category, a food establishment is inspected one, two or three times per calendar year.  The rounds of food inspections are scheduled between other seasonal fluctuations in the duties of the environmental health officers:  festivals, special events and the Farmers Market (summer, fall), and business licensing (winter).

Additionally, the Environmental Health Division enforces the property maintenance and nuisance control regulations (which address noise, illumination, weeds, litter and refuse) of the City.  This division also manages the City’s animal and pest control programs, and the licensing of Park Ridge businesses.
