The public can submit written and oral comments regarding the proposed Camp Street Trail Phase 3 during a City of East Peoria public hearing open house from 3 - 3:30 p.m. Monday, March 13. The open house will occur in the City Council Chambers at the East Peoria Civic Complex, 401 W Washington Street.
The proposed Camp Street Trail Phase 3 is located along the south side of West Camp Street from Clock Tower Drive and the Riverfront Drive overpass, and between Camp Street and Farm Creek on city-owned right-of-way. The proposal is for a 10-foot-wide trail with 2-foot gravel shoulders on each side and a future trailhead parking lot. A grant application to cover up to 80% of the project cost must be submitted to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) by Friday, March 17.
The city is seeking state funding from the IDNR to develop the recreational trail. People wanting to comment on the proposal can contact the City of East Peoria at 401 W Washington Street, or the IDNR Office of Grant Management and Assistance.
