The City of West Peoria......a small community in Central Illinois with a neighborhood feel. Incorporated in 1993, it is a great place to start a business or raise a family. Located just minutes from downtown Peoria, but away from the hustle and bustle of city life, West Peoria is ideally located. We are centrally positioned in a major metropolitan area with easy access to transportation centers, cultural amenities, medical facilities, and quality education; yet we are set back enough to preserve our small town charm and grace. West Peoria is a place where families have lived for generations, nurturing a strong commitment to each other, their community, and to the volunteers and civic groups that make this town unique. Sandwiched between two golf courses, we are a place of quiet beauty that is rooted in a grand past! Our old neighborhoods reflect West Peoria's architectural charms while maintaining our outstanding residential affordability. We are dedicated to promoting the growth of our stable and inviting civic and business climates to guarantee a prosperous future!
