First of all, many of those who attended the P83 community meeting Monday afternoon do not like the name given to what they had hoped would be a high-end, high-class shopping and entertainment venue.  They expressed disdain for the term, “P83,” saying it did not meet their high expectations for a unique destination and gathering place.

They prefer Peoria 83, and would like to see the name changed.

But that was not the only criticism aimed at the developer and city staff. When a few of them voiced concern about traffic and the walkway on 83rd Avenue, and suggested solutions to perceived problems, City Engineer Andy Granger said “we’ll evaluate” as the project goes along, or streetscape improvements would be based on the progress of the development. He added that city staff has plans to evaluate all areas of traffic as the project progresses.
