The Village is considering the development of a social media channel to share news and information with residents. We need your help! Please take a moment to participate in a brief survey to help us better understand how you use social media, and what kind of information you’d like to see us share on a social media channel. This survey will take less than five minutes to complete.

We also invite you to share the survey link with your fellow River Forest residents: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RiverForestSocialMedia
