Village of Orland Park March 2, 2017, 2:09 PM

The most recent update from the Orland Park Police Dept. is that “No Thru Traffic” signs will be posted at 183rd and Wolf Rd for traffic heading westbound on 183rd Street (from Wolf Rd). They will also post a “No Thru Traffic” sign with an arrow facing westbound for traffic heading north on Golden Eagle Drive at 183rd Street. This will notify vehicles / traffic leaving the gas station on 183rd Place and turning northbound onto Golden Eagle Drive that the street does not go through westbound from that direction.

No, the 2017-2019 Village of Orland Park vehicle sticker salutes law enforcement. Orland Park’s new sticker shows a black and white American flag with a thin blue line. The blue stripe in the middle shows support for police officers. The top of the sticker reads, “Orland Park Supports Police.”

The Village of Orland Park has a history of recognizing the contribution made by a variety of groups and organizations in our community, by portraying a reference to them on our village vehicle sticker.

Those receiving acknowledgment and appreciation have included the Orland Park Lions Club and a tribute to Vietnam War Veterans on the 50th Anniversary of the end of that conflict.

Recently, numerous requests had been made by residents regarding how we might honor our Police Department for their dedication and work. FBI crime statistics recently rated Orland Park as one of the safest communities to live in Illinois and many residents suggested that the village might acknowledge that work by distributing blue lights – to be displayed outside the home – or perhaps blue ribbons for front yard trees or something that would allow them to show their appreciation for the service our police provide.

This year’s sticker design was meant only to allow the village an opportunity to express their appreciation for the effort and commitment of Orland Park’s law enforcement professionals.

They do so very much for our community and too often do not receive the recognition for that dedication and work.

Thank you for sharing your question. If you have more questions, feel free to contact our Public Information Office M-F at (708) 403-6150.

Thank you for sharing your concerns. If you are referring to the entrance off Ravinia Avenue into Costco, there are no plans to redo the entrance. Any changes would have to be initiated by Costco. As for an additional entrance, the land south of Ravinia contains two vacant parcels that still need to be developed. The village’s Development Services Dept. is working to fill these vacancies. As the land develops, the village will work with the property owners regarding a Ravinia Avenue South extension.
If you would like more information, you may contact the Development Services Dept. directly at (708) 403-5300.

Thank you for sharing your question. Our Development Services Department oversees this project and at this time IDOT is experiencing utility delays that are causing the project to be behind schedule. The new completion date is slated for early 2018. If you have additional questions about this construction, the Illinois Department of Transportation can answer specifics on this project. You can contact them directly at (708) 966-2389.

Please address the infrastructure of streets, sidewalks, curbs within OUR subdivisions (focus on secondary road we live actually live within)., Please have public works STOP using the cheep aggregate filler with substandard adhesives for pot holes (use asphalt as the fore-mention is destroying our vehicles)., Please have complete paving of our roads and not patch work as its NOT buying any time (It is repeated far to often in the same location).

I've asked before. Are there plans to change the entrance/exit to Costco. And opening Ravinia south of Costco would be a great help.

I truly appreciate when I see police out and about patrolling neighborhoods. It makes me feel confident in the safety of our community--especially as a mom of school age children. I loved seeing police biking past our house last summer. If they could do more of that, I think it would benefit our community. , I know of several families who are currently living in the city; due to easy commute. Like many of us, they are out growing their city home and are looking to the suburbs for space and good schools. Every time I talk about all the benefits in Orland Park, they cite the long and infrequent train schedule. The western suburbs seems more accommodating to those who professionals looking to commute into the city. I think it would benefit Orland if we could get an express train into the city.
