Peoria Launches Code Compliance 101 Program

Post Date:08/22/2019

Some of the most popular questions that the city receives are related to code compliance. To connect residents with experts and get their questions answered, the city of Peoria created the Code Compliance 101 program. The first session is Thursday, Aug. 29, 2019 at 6 p.m. at Country Meadows Elementary School.

The city of Peoria works to ensure safe, healthy neighborhoods and that is consistent with our city codes,” said Peoria Neighborhood Services Manager Jack Stroud. “While striving for voluntary compliance and public awareness, the code compliance function maintains and preserves the integrity of buildings, properties, and neighborhoods in the community. Our Code Compliance 101 program is intended to help residents and business owners gain a better understanding of how our city codes work to benefit them and how we can work together in partnership to create and maintain a sense of community pride.”

Code Compliance 101 is a series of education and training sessions where code officers will discuss common code violations and provide an overview of the complaint process. The most common violations in Peoria are RV and trailer storage, weeds and grass, material and debris, dead vegetation, and signs. The code compliance team is dedicated to protecting the public’s health, safety and welfare, while ensuring every citizen the right to a clean, enjoyable neighborhood by enforcing the City of Peoria’s codes and ordinances. The new program kicks off on next week with a total of four sessions scheduled so far.
