Rental Registry

The City of Rockford's Rental Registry system was designed to support the goals of the Residential Quality Support Ordinance (# 2013-024-O).  Landlords are required to register their residential rental properties by March 1, 2014. A residential rental property is any property on which one or more dwelling units are located that the owner thereof rents, either entirely or in part, to another person for occupancy as a dwelling unit

By registering your property and providing an email contact, the City will automatically notify you if there is a police incident at one of your properties.  

The Rental Registry website is:

For assistance on how to register your property, a step-by-step guide can be found here

Main and Auburn Roundabout

Why a Roundabout at Main and Auburn?
Of the numerous alternatives examined, this roundabout option is cheaper, safer, more efficient, and has the least negative impact on the surrounding business and residential area.

It will improve the existing and future traffic function of the intersection and enhance this important area of the city.

When is the roundabout going to be built?
Utility relocation and building demolition is intended to be underway in 2012. Roadway construction is intended to begin and be complete in 2013.

How does a roundabout impact the properties near an intersection?
At the Main and Auburn intersection, the property impacts are far less with the roundabout when compared to traditional intersection improvements.

Since roundabouts do not require the development of turn lanes, they allow the roadway between intersections to be narrower, thus reducing property impacts. This is especially true of the Main and Auburn intersection.
