BELVIDERE (WREX) -
The former Secretary of State building in Belvidere will not be developed into a new bar.
City council turned down a special use permit for a proposed bar on pearl street. One alderman says several people turned out Monday night to voice their concerns over having a bar in that spot. The special use permit asked for video gaming to be in that bar. It would've been in a residential area.
