On November 17, 2011 the Village of River Grove Board of Trustees adopted a Vacant Building
Registration Ordinance.

Village officials believe this will allow owners and the Village the ability to work together and take greater collective action in the prevention of problematic vacant properties. This action became a necessity with the downturn in the economy and the increasing number of foreclosed, vacant properties that have begun impacting the quality of life in the community.

The goal is that this new ordinance will facilitate an empowered relationship between property owners and the Village of River Grove to take the necessary measures in addressing problematic vacant properties that may come about from time to time.
