More than 100 people attended a public hearing this evening to get more information about the South Village TIF plan.
The city said implementing a TIF district will help to fund public improvements and promote redevelopment in the area.
One resident said she's glad the city is stepping in. Robin Berry said, "There hasn't been any economic development on the south end of Peoria for years. If you take a look at some of those areas, those commercial strips like Western or Adams I mean it's like a desert."
The city said no final plans are in place yet. Monday's hearing was only to bring the public up to speed.
