Following the passage of a December 2022 resolution, the Village of Richton Park was selected to receive the EV readiness designation once the qualifications have been met. Only University Park and Richton Park have the potential to receive this new designation in the Southland. Here, we are creating an effort to better communicate our progress and provide resources and information to residents interested in joining us on this journey.
We strive to make progressive initiatives available for the community. In an effort to reduce our collective carbon footprint, and encourage more sustainable means of travel, the Village will be supporting the installation of the necessary infrastructure. Though this transition isn't solidified overnight, the Village is committed to incremental progress through the partnership with residents, businesses, ComEd, and other area stakeholders.
