RF begins working on a climate action plan

With the help of two groups of graduate students from the University of Illinois at Chicago, River Forest officials have begun creating a climate action plan for the village.

Officials formed a partnership with UIC to have graduate students in the Department of Urban Planning and Policy create two separate climate action plans as a class project. The class was divided into two groups, with each group creating a climate action plan specific to River Forest.

After working on the project all semester, the students presented their plans to village officials on April 30, after which Seth Jansen, management analyst for the village, provided overviews of the plans at the May 13 village board meeting.
