The owner of the vacant building which formerly housed the White Horse Inn on Main Street in Normal is tearing it down to up a parking lot. The lot would be temporary as the owners want to redevelop the site over the next several years. For now, though, they're asking town council permission to put in parking spaces for their adjacent property, and an ATM. The White Horse for years was a notorious campus area hangout and bar, but has been gone for nearly 20 years. Other attempts to find tenants and redevelop the existing building have had mixed results over the years.
