Peoria Taft Homes http://peoriapublicradio.org en Outside the Horseshoe - June 24, 2014 http://peoriapublicradio.org/post/outside-horseshoe-june-24-2014 <p>The first zoning change request related to the replacement of the Taft homes was on the Peoria City Council's agenda Tuesday, June 24, 2014. The zoning for the historic Greeley School property is in the part of the community known as the&nbsp;North Valley. It's part of the city with well organized neighborhood associations. Some neighborhood association members in the area have questions about the zoning variances required to get the property to meet the needs of the site development currently being proposed.&nbsp;</p><p> Wed, 25 Jun 2014 23:58:14 +0000 Tanya Koonce 25499 at http://peoriapublicradio.org Outside the Horseshoe - June 24, 2014 The Taft re-development project begins to take shape http://peoriapublicradio.org/post/taft-re-development-project-begins-take-shape <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:2;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5f147fd4-beb2-5840-b3d3-d92cb8969683"><span style="font-size: 16px; font-family: 'Courier New'; background-color: transparent; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>The Peoria Housing Authority selected a co-developer to handle the Taft Homes project.
