Quest for All-America City Award to shut down Adams Street

May 22, 2013

A local group is asking for Peoria people to help in competing  to win an All-America City Award. The Young Professionals Organization of Greater Peoria announced last month the city is one of 20 finalists for the designation.

The group is now working to put together a video highlighting Peoria’s assets and people. It’s asking for residents to pack Adams Street between Liberty and Hamilton for the final shot of the video. The goal is to show the National Civic League how much public support the city has.

Residents are asked to be in downtown Peoria Thursday evening at six. The shoot is expected to take up to an hour. Participants should wear something that’s unique to Peoria like a Steamboat or Bradley University t-shirt. The city of Peoria will close the area to traffic from 6 to 7.
