Message From the President | Happy New Year 2020

I want to convey my very best wishes and sincere thanks to all of you as we wrap up an eventful 2019 and shift our momentum into not just the next calendar year, but a new decade as well. The past 12 months have been marked by noteworthy achievement and progress. As we reflect on the past year, I believe that we have many reasons to have enormous pride in our accomplishments and look forward with enthusiasm to the future here in  Richton Park. Every new year presents a bundle of new opportunities to perform and grow. Let us aim for higher goals in 2020 and work hard to achieve them.

As we embark on this new year and decade, planning and sustainability will remain the focus for several goals. Two initiatives that are of extreme priority are our 2020 Strategic Plan, and the 2020 Census. Currently, we are working diligently on the very important strategic planning process to assure the direction, continuing success, and improvement for the next 5 years. As a  community of substance and character, we value your input and feedback. If you haven’t already, please complete our Strategic Planning Citizen Survey online. The Village wants to get your take on how it can best serve the community.

Also, we emphasize just how vital entire village-wide participation is for the upcoming 2020 Census. It is reported that only 72% of Richton Park was accounted for from the 2010 Census, resulting in $1,400 PER PERSON in   funding being missed out on. This time around, let’s get that 100% participation, and get the funding that we deserve to invest back into Richton Park.

Richton Park – and all of those who are part of this family and community – will continue to make us proud in 2020. We will maintain our momentum and actively work to shape our own future as one of the Southland’s premier   communities. We will continue to seek opportunities for infrastructure and land development. We will continue to forge ahead by seeking the availability of grants/funds and opportunities to grow our community. We will continue to engage actively to create and sustain good governance, vision, and consistency.

Along with the Board of Trustees, our Administrative staff and all the employees of the Village, we look forward to continuing to serve you to the best of our abilities.

Thanks for making Richton Park "Your Home."
