With commuter and downtown shopping parking in high demand, the Village of Riverside obtained funding from the Illinois EPA to construct a Green Pavement Project through the Illinois Green Infrastructure Grant.  With this grant, the Village was able to fund the Burlington Street parking lot and the construction of a porous paver alley at a location in serious need of rehabilitation. CBBEL developed a design using permeable paving in a traditional pattern along with a Rain Garden feature.  These elements dramatically reduced the stormwater runoff for the facilities and complemented the Village’s historic nature.
