District Planning South Main Corridor


Major investment in the South Main corridor has created a pleasant arterial thoroughfare that connects the City Center with the southern end of the City and the Rockford Airport. Pedestrian and bike-friendly street design encourages people to use sustainable transportation methods and connects several of the district’s popular attractions, such as the Klehm Arboretum and Tinker Swiss Park, with the City Center. Te extension of the riverfront trail from Barber Colman south to Blackhawk is popular with area cyclists and nature enthusiasts.

At the northern end of the district, two major development initiatives have had a dramatic impact on the City Center. Te development of the Amtrak station brings Rockford residents and visitors to the southwestern City Center. Te eventual redevelopment of Barber Colman into a new urbanist mixed-use village with significant riverfront parkland will bring a much larger residential population to the district. Te gradual redevelopment of commercial space around the intersection of Kent and Main has brought a collection of neighborhood retail offerings to the neighborhood.
