The City of East Peoria says 2013 is a year centered on growth.
That was one of many messages East Peoria Mayor Dave Mingus talked about in this year's State of the City Address.
Mingus says the new Levee District is just one of many centerpieces in the region.
He says the goal of the city is to meet the needs of the residents today and in the future.
Mayor Mingus says there is still much expansion to take place in the Levee District.
He says the city is in talks with a number of companies about new additions to the area.
