The goal of the Planning & Development Office is to foster economic growth and an improved quality of life in West Peoria by encouraging the creation and attraction of new businesses, the retention and expansion of existing businesses, new job creation and a more diversified tax base.  The Planning and Community Development Coordinator works closely with the Plan Commission, the Land Use Committee, and the Zoning
Officer on future development throughout the City.
 
West Peoria seeks to redevelop and enhance its main business corridors, Western Avenue and Farmington Road; and also to revitalize the downtown area, the Sterling and Rohmann intersection.  To help accomplish these goals, a Tax Increment Financing District (TIF) has been established and a business survey was distributed to explore the needs and concerns of local business owners.

Plan Commission

The Plan Commission is excited to pursue redevelopment efforts in the community to encourage economic growth and an improved quality of life for all residents. In 1994, the City of West Peoria adopted its first Comprehensive Plan after becoming a city. The job of the Plan Commission is to help guide development according to the Comprehensive Plan. The Commission periodically reviews the Plan and convenes monthly to discuss planning issues and review applications for zoning and ordinance changes.
