The Hard Rock team is excited about our proposed casino at State Street and I-90 – the site of the former Clock Tower Resort. We know there is a rich history – and lots of good memories – at this site for the residents of Rockford and the region. We want to build a new history for Rockford, with a casino and entertainment complex that will attract both residents and visitors traveling through Illinois and Wisconsin.
If you are interested in joining our mailing list to receive updates and alerts about the status of our proposal, please sign up below! Our proposal must be approved in a two-step process. First, the City of Rockford must adopt a resolution or ordinance in support of our proposal; learn more about the city process here. If approved by the city, an application is then filed with the Illinois Gaming Board; learn more about that process here.
We are committed to investing in the community and to hiring and buying locally. If approved by the city and state, there will be numerous employment and vendor opportunities for local residents and businesses with the casino. Please sign up for news and alerts below – and let us know if you are interested in learning about future employment or vendor opportunities.
