The park maintenance crew will start to remove trees, shelters and various other equipment from the park over the next week or two. Once they have finished removing these items, the fence closing of the park will be installed. We will replace trees during the Fall planting season.
The Village permit has been approved. We are awaiting receipt of updated information and bonds from a couple of contractors. Work should be starting with mobilization occurring in the area including fencing for the construction zone within the next couple of week. Thanks for your patience during this process!
We are still awaiting approval for the Village permit. Park maintenance crews will begin removing items from the site once approval is given. After the Village approves the permit, final plans will be provided and work should start shortly thereafter. We are still looking toward an early March start date. Next update will be on 2-12-18.
Staff had a pre-construction meeting last Friday with the principals involved in the project. Work related to mobilization should start in a couple of weeks.

We are still awaiting the final permit hurdle from the Village of Tinley Park which should be returned shortly. Next update to be provided 1-29-18
