ROCKFORD -- Transform Rockford hosts two top economists from the Chicago Federal Reserve.

Susan Longworth and Jeremiah Boyle speaking tonight about the success of other cities -- and what Rockford can do to share in that success. They explained there is no one-size-fits-all solution -- but there are attainable goals.

"It's really a process of listing and developing and seeing what is the cohort of leadership that emerges," Longworth says. "And at the end of the day, what can the community become united around."

Both speakers explained manufacturing is a struggling field to rely on nation-wide. Transform Rockford will host a community vision rally July 9th -- for additional feedback from residents.
