What can I do with the lot after I purchase it?

You must maintain the lot in accordance with the City of Peoria Municipal Code. The following information is presented as links to Municode to better provide a complete picture of what is required and possible with your side lot:

Additionally, lots purchased from the Side Lot Program are all zoned Residential, meaning you may build on the lot as long as it's in accordance with the City of Peoria Zoning Ordinance on residential lots. You may also build one accessory storage structure (shed, garage, etc.) or place a fence, if both parcels are under the same ownership to be considered one zoning lot, any required permits are obtained, and work is done in accordance with the Unified Development Code. Any additional questions can be emailed to the Side Lot Program or please call the Community Development office at 309-494-8600.
