The City of Peoria Community Development Department is excited to host its annual Great Neighbor Appreciation Week from July 8th to July 13th. This week-long celebration recognizes the people in our community who consistently go above and beyond to be a great neighbor. This is a week for neighbors to reach out to each other, to create new friends, and to express thanks to those who help make neighborhoods a great place to live. Residents, community groups, and businesses across Peoria are invited to celebrate at different events throughout the week.
