ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Transform Rockford hosted its last community visioning session as the group now readies to form a plan for change in the region.
This meeting came the same day www.safewise.com didn't include Rockford or any surrounding towns in its list of 50 Safest Communities in Illinois.
"It's important to be open and honest about where we are today and to recognize the situation," said Transform Rockford's Scott Anderson. "That doesn't mean we accept it and that's why we want to move on and change."
Transform Rockford will now collect the information and input gathered from the public over the last two and a half months and construct a plan for the region's future.
The group says it could take until this fall before the final plan is complete.
