Earlier this month, the City of Peoria Community Development Department launched the second annual “100 Blocks in 100 Days” initiative. Over a 100-day period, each Code Enforcement Inspector will be walking door-to-door to introduce themselves to the residents. By the end of November, staff will have covered over 100 blocks throughout the City of Peoria.

The “100 Blocks in 100 Days” initiative will provide residents with the opportunity to speak directly to their Code Enforcement Inspectors and will also allow them to share suggestions, comments, and concerns about their neighborhood. This program not only promotes building relationships with city staff, but also illustrates that while Code Enforcement Inspectors do write tickets, they also educate residents on how their work impacts maintaining property values, increasing public safety, and protecting quality of life.
