ROCKFORD, Mich. (WZZM) -- Despite loud opposition, a development is moving forward that will bring major changes to downtown Rockford.
The community shared their concerns with the city planning commission Thursday night. Commissioners still gave the project the go-ahead.
Back in February, the city commission approved the preliminary plan to build the 51-unit Tamarack Run condo development.
Thursday evening, the planning commission also approved the plan, by a five-to-one vote.
City hall was packed, though, with community members strongly opposed to the project. Among their concerns are the environmental impact and increased traffic. The new construction will nearly double the amount of homes in the area near Monroe Street.
