Peoria residents could start seeing a lot more activity near the intersection of Cotton Crossing and Grand Avenue.
The Peoria Planning and Zoning Commission has given its blessing to the 125-acre Peoria Place, a proposed development that today is home to a medical center, but in the future could be bustling with residents living, working and playing in the area.
This site has been largely vacant for a while, with an approved planned area development zoning governing how the land can be used. The council is scheduled to consider it June 16, amending the PAD for more appropriate uses.
