Transformational Projects

Your Ideas

Between August and October 2016, spoke teams and the broader community generated project ideas that will lead to achieving the impact and strategy statements. Over 200 project ideas were submitted through Community Idea Exchanges events, as well as online. The original list of projects ideas is available on the 2016 Project Inventory.

The Process

Between July and October 2016, community members throughout the Rockford region submitted over 200 project ideas. Ideas were captured at Community Idea Exchange sites and online. To see the full list, click here

The region’s shared values, vision, impact and strategy statements guided the 14 spoke teams to refine the list of transformational projects. The project inventory contains the most current list of transformational projects. With the completion of metrics and milestones, all projects will be sequenced and updated on the Transformation Map.
