Review of Rockford, Illinois

Making Progress!
Star Rating - 4/5/2019
Rockford has made great strides in the past 20 years. Downtown used to be a ghost town. Now, there are activities almost every weekend. City government has worked to bring restaurants and hotels to the downtown area. Keep it up!

How does being ranked one of the worst cities in the country and being the city with the highest amount of people leaving in Illinois constitute progress? Rockford is a crime infested shithole. When your property taxes cost you more than your mortgage..... I think there may be an issue.

The corrupt selfish cops are the ones who make it so bad.. its basically a city ran by a gang with unlimited power.
