City of Peoria Projects Benefit All Peoria Residents

Op-Ed from Peoria Deputy City Manager, Susan Daluddung, Ph.D.

8/9/2012

In recent years, Peoria residents may have noticed a heightened focus on strategic infill areas like Old Town and the Sports Complex entertainment area (P83). In the latter, the city has completed a series of planning and design documents to transform P83 into a dynamic and pedestrian-friendly area with a distinct identity. The complex itself will soon see major improvements to some of the buildings and parking area; additionally, staff is continuing its collaborative work on a potential hotel-anchored destination in the southern parking area. In Old Town, several projects have been completed like Osuna Park and Wagoner Plaza facade update and several are in the works such as the community center and the new community park near Olive and 83rd avenues. The projects are part of a series of efforts aimed at revitalizing Old Town.
 

Strategic focus is no less important in Northern Peoria with its pristine Sonoran desert, newly opened Loop 303 and economic promise. Certainly, over the past ten years, the majority of infrastructure improvements were made in parts of the city north of Union Hills Road. Developments such as Vistancia, West Wing, and Sonoran Mountain Ranch meant Peoria needed to build roads, water treatment facilities, a library and parks to serve residents that made north Peoria their home. The completion of Happy Valley Road makes travel within northern Peoria a breeze; and the Loop 303 now connects residents in the far north to interstates 10 and 17, taking regional travel to a new height. Additionally, the city is in progress toward the completion of an open space strategy - providing proper balance between growth and open space. This is essential to cementing the quality of life that residents have come to expect.


It's having this sort of infrastructure and vision that will allow Peoria officials to focus on the next phase for northern Peoria: attracting business. On June 19, Peoria City Council approved the Vistancia Mega Site Targeted Industry Attraction Strategy, a plan to recruit healthcare, higher education, and other specific industries to the area. To date, the city has had several university and industrial/office prospects interested in locating at the site.

The infrastructure has already played a large role in attracting businesses to the area. The most recent coups for the city include: BASIS Peoria charter school, Peoria Regional Medical Center, and the dozens of retail stores along Lake Pleasant Parkway. Speaking of which, the city has plans to improve Lake Pleasant Parkway from Jomax Road to the Loop 303, making access to the freeway even easier.


As we look forward, the city of Peoria is committed to ensuring all 176 square miles within its boundaries receive equal treatment. Projects on the books will continue to build infrastructure and develop public/private partnerships to bring new jobs to Peoria's economy at all ends of the city.
