Earth Day and Spring Clean Up.

  • We are working with the Chicago Park District and FOTP to plan for earth day, but adhere to the rules around COVID. We tentatively plan on hosting a RVN spring cleaning event April 24th, with more information to follow. Check our website for updates on this event.

We have launched a new committee focusing on sustainability initiatives in the neighborhood. Some of the early initiatives include:

  • RVN has partnered with The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) and local schools to educate on the importance of water retention and distribute rain barrels in the neighborhood. Stay tuned for updates on this program. We will have information on the RVN site soon.
  • The sustainability committee is carrying out a tree audit to determine where trees are needed and plan to partner with Open Lands to plant more trees in the neighborhood. Stay tuned for updates on the RVN site.
  • The Sustainability Committee is working landscape designers and landscapers to put together native planting and low maintenance designs with general pricing ideas for parkways. A resource kit for people to use will be available soon on the site.
