While the recent recession continues to effect cities across the state, there are a few seeing success.
Nerdwallet.com has released a study ranking the 10 fastest growing cities in the state. The study took into consideration population, employment, and income growth.
Of course most of the fast growing burgs are in the Chicago area, but there were two central Illinois towns that made the list.
Normal snuck in toward the bottom at number eight, while Champaign surprised everyone by making the list at #3.
