Village of Orland Park
Happy New Year,
The banner on the Village of Orland Park’s website reads, “Orland Park…where you
want to be.” And, despite the economic recession that has affected cities across the
country, Orland Park continues to be the location of choice for individuals, families,
restaurants and businesses.
A number of new businesses opened in 2011 and we currently see the development of
Dave & Buster’s at 49 Orland Square Drive, with the adjacent Orland Square having
begun its own renovations. In 2011, the village welcomed hhgregg, Buy Buy Baby, Ross
Dress for Less, Johnny’s Char House and others.
The Village of Orland Park was recognized by the Illinois Policy Institute as the first
government body in Illinois to receive a 100% score on its transparency index. Everyone
can be very proud of this honor from a non-partisan policy
group that emphasizes good government. See the Citizens’
Information Center on the left margin of the village’s website
for more information.
Exciting initiatives were launched in 2011 and we have new
programs on the horizon for 2012. The newest committee
of the Village Board is the Community Engagement and
Technology Committee. One of the first tasks this committee
took on was to oversee the village’s first community wide
survey. The National Research Center, a non-partisan group
with extensive experience in government surveys, randomly
selected 3000 residents to participate. If you received a
survey at your home, please take a minute to complete it and
send it back. We’re eager to hear how you think we can make
Orland Park even better.
Like many communities throughout the state, the village is
considering an electrical aggregation program. Aggregation
refers to many customers joining together to form a buying
group, in this case for electrical service for residents and
small businesses. Buying electricity collectively could mean a
significant annual savings on the energy portion of an electric
bill.

We’ve had a number of residents call to ask that the village offer this and many
municipalities in the state have implemented similar programs to help their residents and
small businesses save money. It also provides an option for those who choose not to
participate. A referendum will appear on the March 20, 2012 Primary Election Ballot and
more information is available on the village’s website at www.orland-park.il.us.

Downtown Orland Park
Main Street Taking Shape
Downtown Orland Park, at 143rd Street and LaGrange Road,
combines historic Old Orland with the village’s present and future,
offering a pedestrian friendly mix of residential and retail uses.
The village has long had a vision for blending its rich history with the
current character of the community in its downtown.
With the addition of Orland Park Crossing
in 2004, Downtown Orland Park began
to take shape with much to offer --- the
historic integrity of the Old

Ninety 7 Fifty On The Park will include 295 luxury residences, more
than 8,600 square feet of interior amenity space, 4,000 square feet of
commercial space and structured parking on approximately four acres
in the downtown’s Main Street area. It will help establish Main Street
as a pedestrian friendly area that offers an easy commute to Chicago.
Main Street will also attract those who want to shop,

To reach its full potential,
Downtown Orland Park
needed a more suitable hub
for commuters, areas for
gathering and attractions
to draw people, bringing
the area to life. These needs
created the Main Street area, a 21-acre triangular
shaped tract of land with a mix of retail, industrial and
open space situated among the downtown’s best assets.
The Old Orland
Historic District is a
key component of
Downtown Orland Park,
blending the village's
past and present with
its future.
Orland Park’s 143rd Street train station was built as
the first step in the planned transformation, replacing
the aged building in need of repair. The new station
offers convenient

Upgraded Buildings
With the assistance of federal grant monies, the village
upgraded the HVAC systems in all civic campus buildings with
more modern and energy
efficient systems. Grant
monies were also used to
complete a new roof at the
Franklin Loebe Center and
begin replacement at the
Frederick T. Owens Village
Hall. In addition, village
staff renovated the former
police facility, creating a new
home for the Recreation
Department administrative
offices and Learning Ally.
Doing this work in house
enabled the village to
substantially save on costs.

Center opened in November,

Travel in the Village of Orland Park continues to be a Village Board priority. The largest infrastructure improvement made in 2011 was the
