REMINDING ALL HOMEOWNERS

PROPER GATEHOUSE PROCEDURES:
  • As there is no overnight parking on the streets, please call the Gatehouse (708–403–3136) if you have a guest, or guests staying overnight that will have their cars parked on the street overnight.
  • Please remember that all guests, vendors and visitors, if not on your permanent guest list, should be phoned into the guard on duty.  This will permit the guard to process your visitors expeditiously.
  • The guard is notified of all approvals for exterior improvements.  If you have not received an approval, the guard will not give access to the contractor.
  • Should you need a dumpster for interior or exterior work, you should contact Schrank & Associates, Inc. at 708–349–3133 to advise.  Schrank & Associates, Inc. will notify the guard of the date of arrival.  If you have not notified of the arrival of a dumpster, the delivery will not be accepted.
  • The guards are not permitted to accept delivery of perishables on your behalf.
  • Remember not to follow too closely when entering through the resident transponder lane.  This is to permit the gate to close properly before you proceed and avoids the gate hitting your vehicle.
  • Please contact the guardhouse when you have a contractor working at your home over a long period of time.  The guards maintain a separate report to track long term improvement projects.
  • In the event of a personal emergency, fire, health or criminal in nature, your first call should be to the Village of Orland Park Fire Department or Police Department. Your second call should be to the guard on duty.  This is to safely expedite your immediate need for assistance.
MAINTENANCE OF DRIVEWAYS
  • Asphalt Driveways:
    As a reminder, asphalt driveways should be seal-coated every couple of years to protect the surface and extend the life of the driveway.  The cost is minimal and provides protection against early deterioration of the surface and underlying structure due to water infiltration.  Please maintain your driveway to help keep our community looking its best.
  • Paver Driveways:
    The Spring and Summer Seasons are also good times to assess the condition of paver driveways.  Periodically, a power washing and re-sanding may be needed to keep the pavers in great shape, and to attend to any weeds and moss that have developed between the sand joints and in crevices.
