Join together with your neighbors and neighboring communities to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing rural areas and small towns in the Greater Peoria region. This is a place to openly discuss issues—such as town revitalization, small business development, industry, jobs, housing, natural resources, and broadband—and propose projects and programs that support community and economic development in your area. With your input and guidance, we are creating an economic development strategy that works for everyone.
