District Vision


A series of criteria were evaluated to identify and delineate these districts, including: ● ● Te presence of existing assets and uses that reinforce the vision for the District;


● ● Te existing physical conditions such as grade changes, derelict buildings, environmental impairment, proximity to the Rock River, and condition of the streetscape; ●● Access and transportation links with the rest of Rockford, and the availability of public infrastructure, such as parking;


D


● ● Te desire to develop concentrated geographic areas. Te objective is to nurture a distinct experiential identity for each district that is synergistic with the other city center districts (a district identity is likely to be diluted if the district area is too large). All attempts were made to delineate inclusive but implementable districts.


● ● Te needs and desires of the Rockford community were critical in informing the types of districts that should be programmed in the City Center. In proposing the identity and location of districts, consideration was given to the breadth of the current City Center market offering, the history and culture of the City and Rockford’s current and potential demographic profile.


Within each district, an initial core focus area for revitalization is identified, with a larger district also indicated. Te core focus area represents the most likely area for improvement over the next 12-60 months. Te broader district delineation represents the area that the district will grow into in the medium- and long-term. District rankings and descriptions in the following section correspond primarily to the core focus areas.
