Welcome to the Riverwoods Village Hall Project site.  

Important Update: On May 17, 2016 the Board of Trustees authorized the Village Hall Project to move forward with awarding contracts and start the demolition phase at the earliest possible time.  As a result, the Village Staff will relocate to 320 Portwine on May 18 - 19th and should be open for business on May 20th.  Public Meetings will be held at Wolters Klewer on Lake Cook Road.

As part of community outreach, the Village will provide information and project updates through this site to allow the public the opportunity to monitor the project's progress and review reference information related to the project.

Riverwoods Town Hall Meeting

Town Hall Meeting on the Project.  

On March 29, 2016 a town hall meeting was held to review the project and discuss the constraints (Financial, Legal, Zoning, etc) that led to the decisions for the project.  The event was streamed live and a recorded for future reference.  You can watch the meeting in its entirety by starting the video above.

Current Village Hall Plan

The decision to pursue a new village hall was based on several factors:

  • Value for the cost over time - a new building will serve the community for the next 50 years
  • Compliance with national and local building codes and work environment codes
  • Better use of available space with minimal disturbance to the natural landscape
