Champaign councilman says more discussion needed on housing project
A Champaign councilman isn't tipping his hand on his support for a proposed housing complex in his district.
Officials are looking at putting up several buildings with housing and retail space north of University Avenue between Fifth and Wright. Some residents in the area are opposed to the project, saying it will cause traffic congestion and a rise in the cost of living, among other things.
Councilman Will Kyles said more public input on the project is needed.
Kyles added that if things progress as scheduled, the housing project will go before the city council in early February.
Kyles made the comments Thursday on the WDWS Morning Show.
