The results of the city's recent community revitalization survey will be discussed at three meetings in January. The meetings are open to the public.
The first meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 10 at the Richland Neighborhood Community Center, 446 Cass St., and the next two will be from 4 until 6 p.m. Jan. 23 at East Peoria Community High School, 1401 E. Washington St., and the First United Methodist Church, 154 E. Washington St. The meetings are being hosted in the neighborhoods targeted for revitalization but all East Peorians may attend.
The recent survey focused on mobility in the community and was a cooperative effort between the city and the Illinois Housing Development Authority. The goal is to develop a community revitalization plan. The survey was available on the city’s website as well as in paper form, and more than 400 responses were received.
