Welcome to the Village of Green Oaks

IBernard Wysocki would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Green Oaks internet site. Hopefully our site will provide you with needed information about the village of Green Oaks. The Village of Green Oaks is a small and proud community approximately 30 miles north of O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois. Our community is rich in tradition that affords the pleasantries of quiet country living, excellent schools, access to major highways and tollways, single family home on large lots, all complemented by our growing commercial and retail business district.

If you are just browsing or are looking for specific information, our site has much to offer. I hope you will enjoy the information we have provided. If there is something you wish to find out about our village, you may send specific questions to vilgrnoaks@aol.com for an appropriate reply.

Sincerely,
Bernard Wysocki

  Road Improvement Project


2020 Drainage Improvements - Culvert replacement was the focus of the work this week, and the contractor is wrapping up the tree clearing at the Banbury outlet today.  Please pardon the mud and dust - roads are swept at the end of each day.  Ditch regrading will commence on Kenton next week followed by Cranbrook later in the week.  The contractor will be grading from the downstream (low) end to the upstream end, and will follow with stabilization measures (seed and blanket) shortly thereafter.

2020 Road Improvements Project - Drainage work will begin on Morgan Court late next week.  We are still several weeks out from the start of pulverization and larger scale paving work.  The contractor is targeting mid-June to start, and we will share more precise dates as the work nears.

SWALCO Update: Residential Waste Collection Services

The waste industry is indicating it is operating at nearly full capacity and is still able to provide regular collection for garbage and recyclables. One service that has been impacted throughout Lake County is the collection of bulky items or large items left outside of the garbage container, which will no longer be collected unless the material is placed in a rigid container or plastic bag.  The waste industry has told us they made this decision based on the safety of its drivers.  For specific information on the status of bulky item collection in your community please check the SWALCO Neighborhood Program Community Website (Green Oaks)
