"There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still."
-Franklin D Roosevelt
North Riverside refuses to be a community left standing still. That is why at Monday night's village board meeting, the Mayor and Trustees agreed, by a majority consensus, to approve the purchase of the Christ Presbyterian Church and Parsonage at the corner of 8th Avenue and 24th Street. The agreed upon purchase price of both properties is $500,000. The Village Board will formally authorize the purchase at the January 6, 2020 village board meeting.
Property of this caliber rarely becomes available in the Village and provides us with a unique opportunity to exercise foresight and progressive thinking.
Stay tuned! Once the sale is finalized, the Village will present future land use options for public comment and feedback. The community's thoughts and ideas on this future redevelopment plan will be essential to its success!
