About the Commission
Our mission is to encourage economic development of the community. We work closely with the village and residents to study the retail businesses in the community, and recommend plans for encouraging commercial development and improving the Village sales tax revenue and tax base.
Why Choose Riverside?As one of the nation’s first planned suburban communities, and one of only two villages in the state designated an arboretum, Riverside is truly the hidden gem of suburban Cook County. Its incomparable design, pastoral setting and unparalleled small-town ambiance offers its residents, business owners and visitors alike the chance to experience the kind of safe, neighborly, American small-town life that has all but disappeared in today’s modern world.
