Peoria offers many of the benefits that expanding companies are looking for:
Throughout the city there are dozens of premiere vacant sites of various sizes along major arterials and a good inventory of available commercial space. Peoria is also moving aggressively on infill opportunities, adopting a revitalization plan and a Commercial Rehabilitation Program for its Old Town as well as an urban redesign plan for its Entertainment District. Investment opportunities for these two areas, in addition to the pristine land that is available for new development in the northern part of the city, are the focus of the city’s strategic development agenda. Peoria is also aggressively pursuing university attraction, health care expansion, and destination retail.
