The City of Riverside Launches First Program of the Business Ready Riverside Initiative
Register for August 15, 2013 training to learn how to save time and money in the plan check process.

As a part of its Business Ready Riverside Initiative, the City of Riverside has enhanced its customer services even more with the implementation of a new online system for submitting plans to the City and completing the plan review process. As a 'Business Ready' City, Riverside understands the challenges of today's business and home owners and as such, strives to deliver programs that increase efficiencies and save money for the City's customers. 

The first of several components of Business Ready Riverside is the implementation of electronic plan review software, ePlan Review. It is designed to save businesses and homeowners valuable time and money during the plan check process and enables more streamlined routing and more expeditious processing of plans.  There is no need to buy any software, ePlan Review accepts over 250 file types. (Read more...) to Host LIVE Google Hangout with Author of Startup Communities on August 2nd, a new co-working and hackerspace in Downtown Riverside, announced that it will be hosting a live Google Hangout with one of the nationally recognized speakers on the topics of venture capital investing and entrepreneurship on Friday, August 2 at 9 a.m.
