Peoria’s Warehouse District has the potential to become downtown’s premier urban neighborhood where streets are animated with people living, working and playing. The district’s proximity to the central business district and the riverfront coupled with its wealth of historic, urban warehouse architecture provides the setting for a unique place that can be a destination not only for the city, but the region and beyond. Reinvestment in the area is strengthening thanks to a handful of pioneers whose efforts have not only sparked a revival of the area, but also expanded the attractiveness of the area to investors interested in its redevelopment. Likewise, the City has been a partner in the effort to revitalize the Warehouse District since 2002 through a series of plans and initiatives. It is imperative that the City continues to embrace the vision of the Warehouse District and takes the necessary steps to assist in ensuring that vision is attained.
