A monthly roundup of information relevant to businesses found on the Village of River Forest’s website.  Curated by the OPRF Chamber’s Business Advocacy Committee and prepared in advance of the monthly Board meeting

1) Northside Stormwater Management Project

Work on the Northside Stormwater Management Project began on Monday, April 6, 2015

On January 26, 2015, the Village Board of Trustees awarded a bid for construction of Phase 1 of the Northside Stormwater Management Project (NSMP). We expect this project to begin around April 1, 2015 and last through November 2015.

  • A separate storm sewer system will significantly reduce basement backups caused by sewer backup.
    • On-street flooding will be significantly improved. The new storm system will provide new capacity that will discharge storm water directly to the Des Plaines River.
    • All the streets being constructed will be resurfaced curb to curb once the project is completed.

A dedicated website about the Northside Stormwater Management Project can be accessed at http://nsmp.vrf.us/

2) 2014-2015 Capital Improvement Projects – Green Alleys

The Village of River Forest was fortunate enough to receive an Illinois Green Infrastructure Grant (IGIG) and will be using it to install permeable paver alleys in the Village. These installations will help prevent standing water, filter pollutants from the stormwater runoff, and drastically improve the driving surface as compared to the existing deteriorated asphalt.
