The goal of the Planning & Development Office is to foster economic
growth and an improved quality of life in West Peoria by encouraging
the creation and attraction of new businesses, the retention and expansion
of existing businesses, new job creation and a more diversified tax base.
The Planning and Community Development Coordinator works closely
with the Plan Commission, the Land Use Committee, and the Zoning
Officer on future development throughout the City.
West Peoria seeks to redevelop and enhance its main business
corridors, Western Avenue and Farmington Road; and also to
revitalize the downtown area, the Sterling and Rohmann intersection.
To help accomplish these goals, a Tax Increment Financing District
(TIF) has been established and a business survey was distributed to
needs and concerns of local business owners.
