City of Rockford Comprehensive Plan Update

comprehensive plan update

The City of Rockford is pleased to announce that we’ll be accepting public comments on the update to the City’s Comprehensive Planning document.

The Comprehensive Plan acts as a guide to coordinate and align zoning and land-use, transportation infrastructure, economic development investments, natural resources, open space protection, and the general needs and concerns of community members. The plan serves as the community’s voice and portrays what the future could look like, while serving as the decision-making tool for elected and appointed officials regarding overall development, conservation, and public investment within the City and just beyond its borders.

This plan update will allow the City of Rockford to refine its vision to maintain and enhance the quality of life for our community well into the future while remaining resilient. This will be accomplished through specific implementation strategies and goals which are outlined in each chapter. The plan was developed with help from the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee which was made up of members of the public, professionals, elected officials, civic leaders, and city staff. 

The public comment period will begin on April 10th, and conclude on May 10th, 2023
