We want you to enjoy yourself, whether you are a resident, are here to visit or are considering Rock Falls for your new home!

Historically, the area is quite interesting. Recreation opportunities abound. The Rock River and Hennepin Canal offer fantastic fishing, boating, hiking and biking, and beautiful scenery.

Our location is excellent. You can get here easily from anywhere, by traveling Interstate 88 or scenic highways U.S. Route 30 or Illinois Route 40. Then, just as easily you can get to Rockford, the Quad Cities, Chicago and other metropolitan areas for a taste of "Big City Life."

The Limestone Project


The City of Rock Falls is continually addressing Brownfields within our community, which are associated with dilapidated and devalued properties.  In recent years, the City has experienced dramatic job losses and economic decline.  In the last few years, Rock Falls initiated the Brownsfields Redevelopment activities and was awarded multiple USEPA  assessment and cleanup grants to identify and assess the Brownfields and to clean up the riverfront properties.  Several sites have been successfully identified and remediated, including the Parrish-Alford (PA) and the RB&W/Reliant site.  However, the limestone building property is still blighted and the City intends to leverage on the past Brownfields success and assess and cleanup the "beautiful eyesore" property along the Rock River.


Utility Reimbursement Rehabilitation Program

The city of Rock Falls is please to present the Utility Reimbursement Rehabilitation Program.  The City is dedicated to enhancing our community by encouraging residential rehabilitation and property improvements for both owner-occupied and rental properties.  The Utility Reimbursement Rehabilitation Program provides financial incentives to new property owners in Rock Falls to help alleviate utility costs during rehabilitation/remodeling.
