44 Homes in Rockford Slated for Demo in 2014

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- More than 3 dozen homes are destined to become rubble in Rockford as city leaders sign off on an aggressive plan to take down problem properties.

The city council signed off Monday on a plan to rip down 44 homes that have been abandoned or neglected for years. The properties are not city owned, but leaders have started the process to remove the homes according to state law. Most of the properties are located in the 5th, 6th, 7th, 11th, and 13th Wards. The plan is to bring in city crews in the next 60 to 90 days to complete the demolitions.
