Honorary Street Signs

The Honorary Street Name Sign Program allows citizens the opportunity to honor people who have made significant contributions to the community. The program is administered by the Peoria Public Works Department. Honorary Street Name Signs will be displayed for a one year period, then the sign will then be turned over to the applicant. Street designations will be determined on a case by case basis. The portion of a street so designated will be one block long. Final approval is given by the Director of Public Works. A completed application, plus a fee of $300 must be submitted prior to approval.
