The City of Peoria Side Lot Program has a closed application process where the Side Lot Team proactively reaches out to individual homeowners whose property is contiguous to an available side lot. Once a targeted homeowner expresses interest in a lot, they must meet the following criteria in order to purchase the lot. These criteria include:

  • Applicant must be current on property taxes
  • Applicant cannot owe money to the City of Peoria
  • Applicant must be a homeowner (no contract for deed)
  • Applicant cannot have outstanding environmental code violations
  • Applicant cannot have defaulted on a Chapter 5 housing case
  • Applicant must be willing to combine parcels
