Rockford, Cherry Valley extend boundary agreement for another 20 years
Online Staff Report
The City of Rockford and the Village of Cherry Valley have extended their current annexation/boundary agreement for an additional 20 years.
The original agreement, which was approved in August 1991, outlined future growth areas for both communities. The boundary agreement resulted from a heated competition for control of properties along Interstate 90 as well as East State Street east of the tollway.
Provisions within the 1991 document spelled out an automatic renewal for an additional 20 years if neither community sent notice to terminate the agreement.
Continuation of agreement allows both communities to pursue orderly development within their portion of the area without the issues that typically occur when two or more communities are located in close proximity, but do not have agreements in place.
Besides the City of Rockford, Cherry Valley currently has agreements in place with the City of Belvidere and the Village of New Milford.
