Thank you for sharing this rumor to The Grapevine. Orland Square Mall is not closing. There have been false posts circulating on Facebook stating Orland Square will close, but these are not true. Please feel free to let others on social media know that the mall will not be closing.

Thank you for bringing your concerns to our Virtual Town Hall. We reached out to the village's Public Works Dept. with your paving question. Deer Chase subdivision's street paving was completed in 2003. Prematurely deteriorating pavement has left residents and maintenance crews dealing with perpetual pothole issues. To address these issues, the village has hired a contractor to construct intermittent pavement patching in Deer Chase subdivision along with several other neighborhoods.
Although the streets in Mission Hills subdivision were paved two years earlier (in 2001), the pavement has held up much better. The existing pavement is structurally sound with few treated potholes. With visible age appropriate cracking and pavement oxidation, the condition of these streets has advanced past the point of the practical use of crack sealing. Crack sealing is most effectively used on pavement with minimal cracking to prevent water from infiltrating the road base. Crack sealing older pavement with extensive cracking is much less effective and significantly more costly. If potholes develop in your neighborhood, please contact the Public Works Department at (708) ) 403-5010. You can also report online at

Why is Deer Chase estates getting new pave streets? This is a new sub division and Mission Hills is a lot older and we have cracks in your pavement and nothing is being done.No sealing of cracks.

I live in the Fernway Subdivision and the drainage culvers have long been a huge problem, no longer properly draining the rain water allowing for constant standing water. First, in 2016 the culverts along Robinhood Drive were dug up and replaced, although the culverts are so steep that it is impossible for the residents to cut the grass in the culverts with walking sideways, and having to use either a push mower or a weed whacker, an injury waiting to happen. Second, after the work was completed last year, the village came and patched the potholes, and large chewed up areas on our street (170th place), although the pothole at the end of our driveway (cause by all of the standing water) was not patched. What do I need to do to get the village to repair this pothole as we are tired of hitting it every day pulling into our driveway? And when will the construction continue?

Amanda, thank you for sharing your concerns. We will make sure the Orland Park Police Dept. is made aware of your suggestions.

The OPPD informed us that all 911 vendors (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, Comcast, etc.) are required by the FCC to pass the subscriber location information to the Public Safety Answering Point (dispatch center), so that should not pose any difficulty.

If you have any special needs (medical response, oxygen use, power requirements), you can contact the OPPD to receive more information about the department's Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system. You can reach Richard Dalzell at 708-364-4999.
