No place is perfect and we do get our petty crime...but it's still a very good community to raise a family. There's a lot of parental involvement with sports, etc. THe Park Dist. just aquired a new building near downtown Peotone for a pre-school or after care, and will be used for family activity. The Park Dist. has activities for adults and kids. The schools are very good too. If you are involved with your kids, raising them in Peotone is no aweat. Kids that have little parental involvment are usually the troublmakers-you'll get that anywhere.
Thanks

The schools in Peotone are a mess. I would look 5 miles south to Manteno. The drugs in the High School are everywhere. PEOSTONERS is what we are being called. Take a good luck around the town at the houses falling apart. The town is going down hill fast.

I can't believe you can tell someone to look into Manteno. First off I don't live in Peotone or Manteno but I do know people in the town and have never heard anything about a big drug problem unless it happened in the last year. Now for Manteno, I wouldn't raise my dog in that town! They have all kinds of drugs in this town and school. I base that on facts. This town also has a heroin problem. The tax is high and the sewer and water is also high and alot of the kids and adults are high also. so don't try to scare off someone who wants to move to a town that still has some oldtime culture. Yea I see a few houses that are run down but take a real good look and you'll see what Im talking about. Move to Peotone before you think about Manteno, period!

If Peotone really was that bad, it would be all over these forum topix! The schools have high standards and the kids who have parental involvement go on to do real well-you get that anywhere. Drugs are everywhere, but don't get caught with them in Peotone-it's a zero tolerance policy at the schools. In town there are many older homes-Historic Peotone. People have restored many of these beautiful turn-of-the-century homes! There are some where people started fixing them up over on Crawford but ran out of funding due to the economy. If you're handy, you can pick up some of these diamonds in the rough for a song and finish them up! Some of these have the original woodwork and trim in them from as far back as the late 1800's!
I don't claim Peotone to be perfect, but I'm happy to live here.

I haven't heard of any crooked cops in Peotone myself.
As for Manteno, it has some good points. A lot of retirees have taken up residences there, especially in the modular home communities, and love it! It has a nice downtown area, good restaurants, big grocery store, etc. Peotone has all of this too, but on a smaller scale.
Manteno has bus service to the Metra Electric in University Park, the Northfield Mall and even the Manteno Veterans' Home/Out Patient Clinic.

Peotone is a good German town to live in. It's quiet and secluded from the rest of crap happening in the surrounding areas, while at the same time, you have convenient access to shopping in Frankfort/Orland Park and Bradley/Bourbonais. If your a good German and you want peace and quiet, Peotone is the place for you!

Peotone cops are by far the worst I've ever seen. I used to have my kids babysitter there and I would pick my kids up when I got off work around 1am. Got harrassed and pulled over at least 2x a week. Super sweet for a single mom tryin to pay the bills. One time they asked to search my car with the kids inside. Couldn't believe it!

Peotone is a great place to raise a family.
Love the schools and the quiet small town feel.
I think your scared of being pulled over for some reason.

No way. It's the worst town that I've ever lived in. There are a lot of gossipy,rude people. The town is pretty divided among old timers and newcomers. The downtown is very run down. No good businesses in town. I wish I'd never moved here, I'll be happy to move.

If you work 40-60 hours a week you won't be crying about bored.
Lots to do close to Peotone if you have a car.
