Rockford residents against mandatory gravel driveway paving started this petition to Rockford Alderman Jonathan Logemann and

Rockford aldermen have been pushing for residents with gravel driveways to have them paved with black top or concrete. This has been in effect for over two years and the deadline is November 1st, 2019. Despite "giving out plenty of notice" and making the notice "as widespread as [they] could" many people have gone unaware and are unable and perhaps more importantly, unwilling to pay for the project. The mandate is part of an effort to "beautify and strengthen the neighborhoods" according to 2nd ward alderman Jonathan Logemann. But this premise is laughable whilst considering the city's pollution, abandoned buildings and crumbling infrastructure. There is no doubt in my own mind and in the minds of others that this is a ploy to increase city revenue via driveway permits and increase property and rain taxes for the homeowner. It is extortion under the guise of community service. 

If you or anyone you know is affected by this legislation, please consider signing this petition. With enough support we can combat this unjust strong-armming by Rockford bureaucrats.
