State Sen. Dave Koehler, State Rep. Jehan Gordon and Peoria Mayor Jim Ardis have recently organized several community forums to address quality of life issues in the area. At the last meeting, the South Side of Peoria was selected as an area of the city for a community project. Project ideas were obtained from the community at Saturday’s forum, which the planning committee will finalize into a work plan for the next steps. In addition, a new project entitled “Celebrating Our Community” will celebrate families and individuals each quarter who make a difference in the community.
To nominate someone, visit the City of Peoria website at www.ci.peoria.il.us, and click on “Celebrating Our Community.” Nominations are due by April 20th.
