By | News

On Saturday October 12, 2019; The Village of Riverdale hosted their first Coffee with the Mayor event of the season, with special guest Congresswoman Robin Kelly, State Representative Will Davis, and Thorntown Township Assessor Cassandra Ward-Holbert.

The Townhall meeting gave residents an opportunity to voice their concerns and ask questions directed to local officials, and for officials to address any pertinent issues in the Southland community.


The event started with a welcome from Mayor Lawrence L. Jackson, thanking residents for attending and participating in the conversation. Soon after residents were welcomed by Thornton Township Assessor Cassandra Ward-Holbert; who gave insight on the property tax cycle this year, and answered all questions concerning the assessment process, exemptions residents may be entitled to, and appeals.

At the event, Congresswoman spoke on a number of wide ranging issues included but not limited to; education, healthcare, jobs, seniors and economic development. She spoke about Villages in the Southland working together to receive grants for a 911 center.  “These federal investments will help fill in the gaps so that our communities, residents and firefighters are safer and better protected”, said Congresswoman.

Here is what you missed from Riverdale’s National Planting Day…

By | Events

On Saturday September 28 2019, The Village of Riverdale partnered with the Student Conservation Association and Chicago Region Trees Initiative to host a Riverdale Planting Day.

This Planting Day happened to land on National Public Lands Day, which is celebrated annually.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of volunteers come together on the fourth Saturday in September to assist with various projects designed to restore and enhance public parks, forests, waterways and more. From trail maintenance to tree planting—volunteers of all ages and abilities roll up their sleeves and work side-by-side to care for public lands. The day also features a variety of hikes, bike rides, community festivals, paddling excursions, and other fun outdoor activities—all set on the backdrop of the country’s public lands and waterways.

The Chicago Region Trees Initiative goal is that by 2050, the Chicago Region will support and host a healthier urban forest, comprised of a diversity of tree species and ages, appropriately distributed across land use types in the region.
