of Peoria will be hosting six community policy discussions gauging community
interest in permitting Electronic Billboards within the city. Residents are
encouraged to attend one of the meetings to learn more about and provide their
opinion regarding the potential benefits, appropriateness, and impacts of
electronic billboard signage along select city roadways.
Digital billboards can be used to advertise local businesses and
community events, communicating emergencies to the public and, add vibrancy to
the community in special areas such as the Peoria Eighty three 'P-83'
Entertainment District (Peoria Sports Complex area). In addition, advertising on
the signs can be a substantial revenue stream for the city which can be applied
to economic development projects. Currently, there are no specific development
projects for which the digital billboards are being considered.
It is anticipated that several Peoria City Council members will attend these
