BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOV.com) -- Belleville officials approved a plan to fund a huge development project that could bring hundreds of jobs to the city.

The city council voted 14-1 to provide tax increment financing (TIF) to developers to build a $50 million development along Route 15.

The development will include a gas station, convention center, hotel, and a Hofbrauhaus, which is a German brewery, beer hall and restaurant.

Officials believe the new development will generate more than $500,000 for the city.

The city hopes ground will be broken in July and the entire project should be completed within three years.
