Orland survey seeks concert-goers' input

The village of Orland Park has hosted three concerts at its newest outdoor venue, the 12- acre Centennial Park West in the Colette Highlands subdivision near 159th Street and 108th Avenue.

The “We Want To Know” area of the village’s website, in the left margin at currently includes a survey asking those who attended the village’s concerts to share their input and suggestions.

“The City Lights Orchestra performed this past July 4th weekend and at the same time last year,” said Orland Park Mayor Dan McLaughlin, who has co-sponsored the village’s concerts. “Labor Day Weekend brought the Hillbilly Rockstarz, a great Chicago area country band. We’re looking for input for what type of shows people would like to see at Centennial Park West.”

The survey asks which concerts the respondents attended, their favorite types of music, questions about concessions and show times, what kind of music they’d like to see at Centennial Park West and more.

“We’re hoping that the many people who attended the concerts will visit the village’s website to let us know how they like this newest venue in Orland Park,” said Trustee Pat Gira, chair of the village’s Recreation and Parks Committee. “This is a great opportunity to let the village know what type of music you’d like to hear at this great location,” Gira added.

“There are a number of questions inviting people to let us know what they think,” McLaughlin said. “We want to know what people like, which shows they saw, how they found out about the concerts and anything else they’d like to offer,” he added.

The survey will be available until Sept. 30 with results posted Oct. 1. For more information, call the village’s Recreation Department at 403-7275.
