Orland Park’s Village Hall was filled to capacity Tuesday night, with people spilling out into hallways and the lobby waiting to offer thoughts on the luxury apartment complex to be built in the Main Street Triangle.
For about three and a half hours, residents took time at a podium to let village administrators, staff and developer Flaherty and Collins know how they really feel about a 295-unit luxury apartment complex that likely will be built on the west side of the Main Street Triangle.
The most frequent concern raised is the financial risk to the village by loaning $38 million initially to Flaherty and Collins to build the complex. While village staff and administrators say the financing has been studied and is safe, many residents still have doubts.
The public forum was scheduled in the wake of an open house last week that quickly descended into a cacophony of arguing.
The village board is scheduled to vote on financing the apartment complex during the Sept. 19 meeting.
