In 2005, the Village of Olympia Fields began a Visioning Plan setting forth goals, objectives and strategies to improve the Village's economic base and overall quality of life. Over a series of public workshops, some 75 key stakeholders came together and crafted a Visioning Statement. As a direct result of the defined objectives, the Village created an Educational Commission to help move our community on the road to Educational Excellence.
