To build a diversified local economy that will create a strong and sustainable community in which residents are able to work, shop, and be entertained.
On December 7, 2010, the Peoria City Council adopted the Economic Development Incentive and Investment Policy (EDIIP) to formalize the city’s intent to pursue targeted economic development. The purpose of the city’s EDIIP is to establish guidelines and procedures for the regulation and coordination of the city’s economic development financial investments, as well as to create a return on investment analysis template that will be applied to each eligible project.
Peoria also boasts the most streamlined and customer-oriented permit and approval process. We are a one-stop shop, with Economic Development, Site Development, and Building Development housed in the same department. To provide the best service to our customers, we have enhanced our standard review process to include two programs to expedite eligible projects: the Fast Track Program and the Expedited Program.

In accordance with the implementation of the City’s General Plan, Peoria offers a Fast Track Program to facilitate the development of specific projects at no extra charge. Projects that are put on the program are assigned a special team from the City that will serve to expedite the review process. Please contact our office to find out if your project is eligible, 623-773-7735.
Development projects that do not meet the eligibility requirements for the Fast Track Program are able to apply for the City’s Expedited Program. This is a fee-based program that will assign a staff member to a project to shepherd it through the process, coordinating directly with the developer to compress review times. For more information, please contact the Permitting Counter at 623-773-7225.
