City of Peoria Warehouse District Conceptual Plan

In October of 2011, the City of Peoria partnered with the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (TCRPC) to administer a planning grant for the Downtown Peoria Warehouse District.  TCRPC then hired Third Coast Design Studio out of Nashville, Tennessee to prepare a conceptual plan for the City of Peoria to consider as the Warehouse District is developed.  The following strategies were identified:

  1.  Create a Downtown Development Authority
  2.  Brand and Promote the Warehouse District
  3.  Focus on Key Catalytic Projects and Attracting Anchor Uses
  4.  Encourage and Incentivize Adaptive Reuse
  5.  Capitalize on Proximity to the Riverfront
  6.  Develop a Parking Strategy for the Warehouse District
  7.  Complete Transportation and Infrastructure Improvements
  8.  Encourage and Incentivize Sustainable Practices
  9.  Refine the Form-Based Code and Develop Design Guidelines
  10.  Create a Program for the Maintenance of Streetscapes and Public Spaces
