Equity
At the municipal level, equity translates into equal access to knowledge, skills and programs that benefit the community.  Goals and actions related to equity can be found among many of the Village's priorities ranging from economic development and open space to parks, recreation and even community and culture programs.  Orland Park has made strides in being a community focused on equity as highlighted in the following sample activities:

  • Smart Living Orland Park improves awareness of and access to alternative "greener" products and practices.
  • The Citizens Information Center and the creation of a Public Information Office are efforts to increase the availability of information to Orland Park residents.  In fact, Orland Park was the first community in Illinois to achieve a 100% score on the Illinois Policy Institute's 10 point transparency checklist.
  • Successful completion of multiple Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) projects  that have resulted in infrastructure improvements like street resurfacing and park development in areas with low incomes.
  • The rental housing registration program provides protection and security to both renters and landlords and results in safe housing options.
