Paint a Plow Program
The city of Peoria Public Works Paint a Plow program allows Peoria organizations to paint a Public Works snowplow blade with messages of winter, snow and ice safety, City or community pride or patriotism. The campaign is designed to build morale and raise awareness for the city of Peoria Public Works Department’s winter operations all year long.​ The Department reaches out to schools, art classes, nonprofits and after school programs within the City to paint the blades with original artwork. When participants have completed their work, the blades will be mounted to a plow truck and used to fight snow and winter weather.

Pole Banner Program
Pole Banners are decorative signs placed temporarily on city poles, often to display upcoming events.

Slow Down, Look Around!
The concern for safety is so great, that the push to, ‘Slow Down, Look Around,’ is now a city of Peoria Public Works Department public safety campaign geared toward encouraging everyone to share the road and extend some common courtesies to avoid accidents.

Planter Painting Policy
In the spring of 2021, the Public Arts Advisory Commission received a request to paint the City-owned concrete structures that are located in the right of way (“ROW”) at the intersection of Columbia Terrace and University Street.  It was decided at that time that it was prudent to develop a policy to address not just the singular request but future requests for City-owned concrete structures located in the ROW, as the City desires to encourage the display of art in public spaces. The policy and application may be found HERE
