Side Lot Program

By taking a smart, strategic, citizen based approach in developing our community, the Side Lot Program is improving the quality of life in Peoria’s neighborhoods.

This program specifically addresses vacant, City-owned lots in areas of the City lacking the density or demand required for a land bank or market based solution.

The Side Lot Program is now open to homeowners who live next to an available, City-owned vacant lot.

All applications can be submitted to the Side Lot e-mail. For more information on the Side Lot Program, please contact the Side Lot Team at sidelotprogram@peoriagov.org or 309-494-8600.
