Below is some general information about Rockford:
Rockford is a city located on both banks of the Rock River in far northern Illinois. Often referred to as The Forest City, Rockford is the county seat of Winnebago County, Illinois, USA. As reported in the 2010 U.S. census, the city was home to 152,871 people. The metropolitan area has 348,360 residents as of the 2010 census. During the latter half of the 20th century Rockford was the second largest city in Illinois; as of 2013, it is the most populous city in Illinois outside of the Chicago Metropolitan Area. The current mayor is Lawrence J. Morrissey, an independent re-elected to a third four-year term in April 2013.
According to the 2010 census, the city has a total area of 61.95 square miles, of which 61.08 square miles (or 98.60%) is land and 0.87 square miles (or 1.40%) is water. Neighboring communities that border Rockford, and are considered an integral part of the Rockford metro area, are the cities of Loves Park, Machesney Park, Belvidere, and the villages of Winnebago, Roscoe, Rockton, Poplar Grove, New Milford, and Cherry Valley. The Rock River is the traditional center of the Rockford area and is its most recognizable natural feature. Also of note, South Beloit, Illinois and Beloit, Wisconsin is part of this continuous urban area that stretches for approximately 30 miles along the Rock River from the Chicago Rockford International Airport north to the Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport.
In recent years Rockford has recorded some of its worst flooding to date. Five inches of rain were dumped onto Rockford on September 4, 2006, leading to the destruction of twenty homes while damaging hundreds more. Less than a year later on August 7, 2007, Rockford was again hit by rain when between 5Ð7 inches of rain fell. Many streets, including major thoroughfares like North Alpine Road and East State Street, were flooded, along with fears of the Alpine Dam breaking. The following day, Governor Rod Blagojevich declared both Rockford and Winnebago County a state disaster area. With this declaration, he dispatched both the Illinois Emergency Management Agency and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to assist the city. Debris removal, law enforcement, damage assessment, and other duties were offered by the governor. However, Rockford’s worst recorded flooding was on July 18, 1952, when a total of eleven inches of rain deluged the city. This caused the drowning death of two residents, and the destruction of $1 million in property. This would lead to a multi-million-dollar drainage program.
Since the end of the 1980s, Rockford has had the dubious honor of being listed at times as one of America’s worst cities by the Rand McNally corporation and Money magazine, sometimes being ranked among the ten worst cities. This may have been due to the lack of jobs and high number of outdated or closed factories. Crime on the west side of town was endemic, with huge areas of old established neighborhoods in extreme blight. The homicide rate in these areas was quite high. Many houses were vacant with no one wishing to buy them. Rockford was also ranked #3 on Forbes’ 2013 America’s Most Miserable Cities list, mainly due to its excessive tax rate for the city’s size as well as its high unemployment rate. The city government has developed many programs to attempt to address these problems and has seen some success. In February 2009, The Wall Street Journal published a series of stories on Rockford and its mayor focusing on various challenges faced by the city, including higher unemployment and lower education levels of workers compared to some cities. New commercial and residential development have begun taking place in the downtown area. The Main Street Corridor is also expected to be redeveloped. Construction from the downtown area, south to US Highway 20 was expected to begin in 2007. In 2007Ð08, the MetroCentre in downtown Rockford underwent a number of interior and exterior renovations.
The Rockford economy has suffered since the decline of the manufacturing industry in the late 1980s. Many of the family-owned companies that once inhabited Rockford were acquired by larger companies; the larger companies then relocated the products being made to lower wage parts of the United States or sent them overseas altogether. The city’s new focus relies on high-technology businesses, tourism generated by museums and its park system, and the westward growth of the Chicago metropolitan area. On September 28, 2007, Rick Nielsen, lead guitarist of the rock band Cheap Trick, announced plans for a $25 million restaurant and hotel on the city’s far northeast side called Rick’s. The restaurant would have a music theme featuring thousands of guitars and memorabilia that Mr. Nielsen has collected. Groundbreaking was expected in late 2007 with a grand opening in the second half of 2008. As of 2011, this project has not yet materialized. Instead, Swedish American Hospital has begun construction on a new cancer center out near the Riverside Blvd interchange with Interstate 90. A new shopping center is being planned for the northeast corner of the riverside interchange as well.
