More Value for our dollars
The passage of the road referendum back in 2007 has taken the pressure off of property taxes, eliminated interest payments, allowed us to leverage the revenues, nearly a third of which come from people outside of Rockford, and the city has paid off the old bonds that were once used for roads.
More Money for Neighborhoods
Each Alderman in the city of Rockford has a say in how hundreds of thousands of dollars are used within each ward.
Each year side streets are paved, sidewalks replaced and curbs are fixed in each of our neighborhoods.
Paving The Way for a Better Rockford!
Citizens for Rebuilding Rockford are a group of people who have banded together to promote and support the Road Referendum which will appear on the February 23, 2021, ballot. Voters in Rockford have voted YES! for the Roads every five years since the initial passage of the referendum in 2007.
The five years marker was the result of a “sunset clause” that was written into the original referendum as a means of making the city accountable for the spending of these new funds. We are now on the threshold of the new five-year marker and we are ready to present our case.
Please join our campaign and vote YES! for Roads.
Thank you for supporting Rockford’s road referendum
Last week, Rockford voters said Yes for continued progress and investments in our roads, bridges, sidewalks and the other parts of the infrastructure that underpin the ability of our residents, businesses, and others to thrive.
