The Final Draft of the Peoria Sonoran Preservation Program was released on December 24, 2014. The program draft is anticipated to go to City Council 1Q/2015 for consideration and action. The Plan provides for an implementation strategy to identify key areas for special consideration - areas that can be strategically assembled over time into a meaningful network of connected open spaces for a variety of users. This could be accomplished through outright acquisition or developer dedication, agency partnerships and/or regulatory tools that help guide future development in a responsible and sensitive manner.
