The Mayor of Godfrey says he is still hopeful of landing a new hotel in the village.  He points to success stories all along 255 from the JB Bridge to the south, all the way to the Wood River and Bethalto areas that are seeing growth.   The next step could be to update the existing hotel study that was done several years ago.

Mike McCormick tells The Big Z the Village Board is considering updating the document.

The area near the Illinois 255 / 111 interchange has been considered for a project in recent years.  The previous feasability study showed Godfrey could support a small hotel.
