Peoria Housing project put on hold

Jul 18, 2014

The Peoria Housing Authority is putting the Greeley Scholar House Project on hold. The historic school is the PHA’s proposed site for eventual public and market-rate apartments that would serve to replace some of the Taft Homes.  The Authority says it plans to re-apply for tax credit financing with the state Housing Development Authority in December. 

 The proposed Greeley School project included offering a Head start school and daycare for the families who live at the site.  Neighbors around the proposed site were generally in favor of the project at a community meeting earlier this month.
