The River Forest Community Calendar is a joint effort product of the River Forest Collaboration Committee. This standing committee is made up of representatives from the Village of River Forest, District 90, District 200, River Forest Township, River Forest Public Library, and River Forest Park District. The group has involvement from at least one elected official and one staff member from each taxing body on a regular basis. The Committee gathers to share efforts and initives of the individual entities as well as to try to identify opportunities for collaboration.

The River Forest Collaboration Committee identified communication with residents as being a mutual interest for all organizations represented. The Committee also concluded that collaboration on communication could be mutually beneficial for all parties by serving as a way to reach non-traditional audiences of any one given agency. In November of 2017, a survey was issued by the Collaboration Committee to all River Forest resident as a way of collectively gathering more data on what information residents wanted to be communicated and how residents preferred receiving communication. Part of that survey included gauging interest in a combined community calendar. The survey results were collected and analyzed by the Collaboration Commission in early 2018. Based on these results and discussion, the group decided to take on this project of building the first River Forest Community Calendar.
