With the State of Illinois moving into Phase 4 on Friday, June 26, 2020, the Village reopening will move to the second stage of our reopening plan effective June 29, 2020.

The second stage will include:

  • All employees and visitors will be required to wear masks when entering any Village owned building and observe social distancing whenever possible.
  • Public meetings and social events are limited to the lesser of 50 guests or 50% of overall room capacity.
  • Masks are required and social distancing is observed whenever possible.  This includes Board of Trustee meetings and all other public meetings.
  • All Departments of Village Hall will be open, including the second floor and basement.

Oak Lawn is dedicated to maintaining and improving its infrastructure to meet the needs of current residents and to be prepared for future generations.  From 2007 through 2013 the Village undertook an aggressive infrastructure improvement program to repair and replace a substantial portion of its infrastructure.  This is just a first step in a multi year annual maintenance program.  Like many Chicagoland communities built in the "post war" era, Oak Lawn will need to replace its aging infrastructure in the coming years.  

The Village supplements local funding for these improvements with a combination of Motor Fuel Tax, Surface Transportation Program Funds, ARRA Stimulus funds and low interest Build America Bonds.  Oak Lawn continues to seek additional funding through local, state and federal agencies to get the most out of local dollars spent on these projects.   Oak Lawn works closely with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) and the Cook County Highway Department (CCHD).  These agencies own and maintain infrastructure within Oak Lawn boundaries that serves Oak Lawn residents.
