CHAMPAIGN -- People in the 5th and Hill neighborhood say they're no longer against plans to build student housing near their homes. Last year, they were worried about unwanted traffic and losing their neighborhood "flavor."

But, neighbors met with the developer, listed concerns and made a few changes. A new proposal moves the apartment complex off Park Street and onto University Avenue. Residents say they're happy they spoke up.
