CHAMPAIGN -- New businesses could be coming to Neil Street. The city council voted unanimously to look into redeveloping the Carriage Center on Neil Street.

City leaders want to move Ford City and other car dealerships just north of I-74 by the old Best Buy building. They would then use the Carriage Center space to develop new businesses like restaurants or hotels

Ford City says it is open to the idea. The dealerships and companies that move in will get a sales tax rebate.
