City Council Vote

By  | 

Rockford City Council is taking steps to make way for a federal building, a couple of Wal-Marts and a new downtown restaurant.

In a unanimous vote the City Council approved the use of eminent domain to acquire property along South Court and South Church Streets.

The Council also gave initial approval to the zoning needed for the two new Wal-Mart stores and a sports bar-restaurant at the site of the former "ING" roller rink downtown.
