The Godfrey Village Board is looking into generating a feasability study that could lead to a developer constructing a new hotel in the village. A developer with ties to the hotel that was recently constructed in Carlinville is apparently looking at Godfrey for his next project, but would like some numbers to look at before making that commitment.

RiverBend Growth Association President Monica Bristow says by ordering the study, Godfrey may also benefit in the future.

There is no particular location the developer is considering, although some past speculation puts likely hotel development near the Humbert Road intersection with IL-255. The board voted to have the village attorney look over the contract proposal with International Society of Hospitality Consultants.
