The City of Rockford, in collaboration with the Northern Illinois Workforce Alliance, Rockford Area Association of Realtors, Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, Rockford Area Economic Development Council, and Rockford Metropolitan Agency for Planning held its first Regional Quarterly Economic Development Report and Review today. The meeting included presentations from the aforementioned partners, detailing historical and first quarter 2016 metrics and discussing ways in which place-based economic development strategies can be aligned with shared measurable.

This meeting was the kickoff of a regional effort to advance the collective impact model for economic development, coordinating and aligning regional economic development efforts using the model of Collective Impact. The Collective Impact Model includes five key components:  a common agenda, shared measurement systems, mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communication, and a backbone organization.

The Homebuyer’s Property Tax Refund Program is a new initiative to encourage investment in Rockford neighborhoods by rebating property taxes for three years on residential properties. 

The program would offer purchasers of foreclosed or short-sale homes, as well as newly-built homes in the City of Rockford, a property tax refund for three years. The refund, issued at the end of each tax year in a lump sum, would cover up to 100 percent of the owner’s property tax bill, if all taxing bodies approve the program. Homebuyers must be under contract by December 31, 2016.
