Temporary Suspensions of Peoria City Sign Code Sections

Peoria Businesses:

There has been a temporary suspension on Peoria City sign code. 

Resolution 2020-43 temporarily suspends the enforcement of portions of Section 21-836 of the Peoria City Code and terminates the temporary suspension upon termination of the State of Local Emergency.

The purpose of this Resolution was to acknowledge that many Peoria business needs include reaching their customers through special messaging during COVID-19. There was a proposal to suspend some sections of the Sign Code pertaining to Temporary Signage, which passed through a unanimous vote.

With this Resolution, all businesses now have access to temporary signage during the extent of the emergency declaration, while still complying with dimensional standards, such as size/area and placement restrictions.

Please see Section 21-836 for standards.
