Economic Development Team Wins International Award
City of Peoria was awarded the Gold Award from the International Economic Development Council (IEDCE) for the Economic Development Agreement Monitoring System (EDAMS). This system is a Microsoft Access database developed in-house to provide a high-level summary of each agreement, detailed reporting of obligations as well as a record of history for each agreement. The system also integrates with the city GIS maps and the permitting software to notify staff of associated economic development agreements or easements about parcels in the city. For its ability to provide proactive project management and monitoring, the Peoria’s EDAMS was listed among the 2019 IEDC Excellence in Economic Development Awards for Innovation Programs and Initiatives.
