New Executive Order for Peoria Residents
On Monday, June 29, Governor Doug Ducey announced an executive order to prohibit large gatherings, cease the issuance of new special event licenses and pause the operations of bars, gyms, movie theaters, waterparks and tubing rentals for one month. To comply with this order and protect the health and safety of city employees and residents, the Rio Vista Recreation Center and Peoria Community Center are closed until July 27. All current Rio Vista membership terms will be extended accordingly during the closure. The human and social services provided through the Community Assistance Resource Center will continue to be accessed by appointment only. The existing hydration stations, virtual classes and home delivered meals and curbside meal pickups will continue at the Peoria Community Center as well.
