We invite all residents in our community to get involved to make Old Oaks the best place to live in Plainfield. We know everyone has a busy schedule but if we all can pitch in were we can, our little area can be a clean, safe and family friendly environment. The more volunteers we have, the better our community.

We try to e-mail everyone with notices, newsletters etc. but we also want to have a central information place where you can find: past newsletter, detailed information on upcoming events, Waste Management information, local vendor information , budgets and more.

If you have any questions or comments, please e-mail our Board of Directors at: info@MyOldOaks.Com

Recent Information from our Board of Directors


First, not sure if you heard the news about the guy going around, and specifically reported from an owner at the Riverside Towns across Caton Farm Rd., but a mother and her kids were in the house, dad was not, but they have surveillance cameras which caught a male white person taking pictures and copying their door locks essentially casing the property.  There is a link to the video below, if you recognize the person please contact the police.   It was reported in the patch so if you can’t click on the link below please search for the video and post to your facebook page and share with your friends and neighbors.

Additions to this include at least two nights of vehicle break ins in Old Oaks Townhomes.  During the second such break in round, the police chased and caught 7 individuals.   You are responsible for your children and if it is found that their actions continue you will be evicted by the association and the owners will be fined and legal charges will be brought against the family and not the minors.

My goal right now is to see if I can contact Ring or other such company and see if they will give us multi unit discounts and residents can order the cameras or door bells or whatever at discounted pricing.

 Thirdly, and equally important is the following new construction before the Plainfield Board which will negatively affect all of us as it involves semi-trailers being added to our roads and were talking 300 to start with and pushing them up to 500 all during peak driving hours.  We know how slow these things can go, and how they ride next to each other on two lane roads, and forget trying to get anywhere on a one lane road with them piling up.  Getting through an intersection could take two or three lights.  Please read the info below and if you can attend the

There is a proposal for a large trucking terminal on Renwick Road just east of Rt. 30.  I imagine this will negatively effect many of our residents that use Renwick and Rt 30. 

I've attached a couple links with further information.  Some HOA's are taking a unified stance against it.  You may have to copy the links into your browser.

If you can, try to attend the first meeting where there board should be listening to the residents that come.  Right now it looks like they are all for it.  The dates are listed in the link, again supplied by the Patch which we all know is not the best paper around but please review and share with neighbors. The first meeting is coming up on Monday so sorry for the late notice which I just received

Hartman Landscape Notes

Hartman Landscape and Snow Removal is contracted to remove snow within our community.  As a reminder, snow is not removed until there is at least a two inch (2”) snow fall.  This does not count snow that has drifted after accumulation and clean up.  Removal shall begin within 4 hours of accumulation.  Snow is not removed if it is less than 2”.  After each snow removal the streets are salted only at the entrances and the three turns.

 The board of directors authorizes additional salting on the property on an as needed basis.  This is based on several factors including temperature, upcoming snow falls, and amount of snow/ice planned in the service area.  As a reminder, owners can purchase ice melt to use sparingly around their units.  Excessive use of salt on the property will damage and possibly kill plant material and lawns.  For these reasons owners are expected to drive slowly and walk carefully through the subdivision at all times and to consider the Chicago Area conditions when walking through the property.

We wish all our residents a safe and healthy winter season!
