As Mayor, it is my privilege to welcome you to the City of West Peoria! We are a small town with an atmosphere of being one big neighborhood and, we have celebrated our 25th Anniversary!
Our community celebrates fun activities as the West Peoria Jamboree in June, the longest running 4th of July Parade, plus the West Peoria Residents Association Night Out Against Crime in September and the Taste of West Peoria. These events promote unity and involvement among our residents and area communities.
CITY OF WEST PEORIA IS...
...a small community in Central Illinois with a neighborhood feel. Incorporated in 1993, it is a great place to start a business or raise a family. Located just minutes from downtown Peoria, but away from the hustle and bustle of city life, West Peoria is ideally located. We are centrally positioned in a major metropolitan area with easy access to transportation centers, cultural amenities, medical facilities, and quality education; yet we are set back enough to preserve our small town charm and grace. West Peoria is a place where families have lived for generations, nurturing a strong commitment to each other, their community, and to the volunteers and civic groups that make this town unique. Sandwiched between two golf courses, we are a place of quiet beauty that is rooted in a grand past! Our old neighborhoods reflect West Peoria's architectural charms while maintaining our outstanding residential affordability. We are dedicated to promoting the growth of our stable and inviting civic and business climates to guarantee a prosperous future!
The City of West Peoria’s goal is to provide ongoing strategic planning with community members in the areas of beautification, economic development, community services and crime prevention and safety! Together, we the residents, the City Council, City Staff and myself as Mayor, are committed to furthering these goals well into the future!
We are here to serve the community with fairness and consistency in all areas of local government. Please feel free to contact us either by email, telephone 309.674.1993 or stopping by City Hall to see us!
Mayor James R. Dillon
