Development project plans to bring jobs to Rockton Rd.


A development plan passes Monday night at the Rockton Village Board meeting.

The annexation along the entire north side of Rockton Rd. across from Walmart will soon be underway after a 5 to 2 vote, passes the plan.  Bringing more retailers to the area will provide more jobs, sales tax revenue and increased property values.  The plan is expected to take 10 years to complete.  Those who oppose the project would prefer a plan that would take less time.
