Government shutdown leaves demolition of Brewington Oaks on hold

ROCKFORD — The ongoing federal government shutdown has delayed the razing of the Brewington Oaks public housing complex and put the moving plans of dozens of residents in limbo.

“We put a timeline to have those buildings vacated by June 28,” Rockford Housing Authority CEO Laura Snyder said. “We were hoping to start demolition and have those towers on the ground by February 2020. So, of course, this is going to push those timelines back.”
