Library design

How about a decommisioned F16 or a more regionally significant aircraft, on top of the new library or other riverfront location to creat a "Must See" item in downtown Rockford, and celebrate the aerospace industry. Is there anything out there that both Sunstrand and Woodward worked on? With a few Chrysler parts also?. How cool would that be? A must see attraction, will get people where you want them.

State Street Beltway

I moved to Rockford from Chicago, travel there frequently for business, and live in downtown Rockford, so it's easy for me to view the city with "fresh eyes". When I consider the average person coming to Rockford for a volleyball tournament, or anything else downtown, the odds are "due to population" they will be coming from Chicago, and therefore will approach via State Street, not the 20, to Main steet wrap around, ...more »

It is an old shoe factory in dowtown St. Loius that has been converted into lofts, apartment and a museum with the most amazing and interactive exhibits we have ever seen www.citymuseum.org. Obviously the Missouri liability climate is much more user friendly than our nanny state, ...more »
