Find New Use For – Not Demolish – Old Buildings

We moved here in February of 2008 to start a life together and when we moved here I thought, “What a great place to settle down and raise a family.”

I have been in downtown Rockford several times and love seeing the dam. I just have one question: Why change a wonderful town not falling apart? The tannery is leaving and the City wants to take out some of the old houses for business? They should keep them – they have been there since the town was built, so why now?

What they should do is take some of the buildings not being used and do something with them. That’s what I think because this is the town I want to raise my kids in.
