Staff at the City of Peoria Community Development Department continue to serve the public through the COVID-19 pandemic although there is no public access to City Hall.  The Development Center is closed to visitors, but the Community Development Department is open for business and city staff are available via phone and email to assist homeowners, contractors, and developers through the development process.
