Rock Island Trail Rest Stations - "Let’s BUILD a healthier city."
Partner with Illinois Department of Natural Resources to BUILD rest areas with benches and water fountains along the Rock Island Trail.
An active community is a vibrant community and no place are Peorians more active than on the Rock Island Trail. Thirty years after its dedication, exercise and nature enthusiasts alike have walked, run, and biked millions of trail miles. All of that hard work requires temporary rest; however, and trail-goers may go several miles without finding respite. BUILD Peoria members will offer a breather.
Northmoor School Playground - "Let’s BUILD for a growing future."
Partner with Peoria District 150 and Northmoor Primary School to BUILD the playground that students and neighborhood children deserve.
Play is essential to development because it contributes to the cognitive, physical, social and emotional well-being of children. Northmoor Primary School guides its students to grow academically and in character and a component of that growth lies in physical fitness. Northmoor is a “high achieving” school despite half of its students living below the poverty line so BUILD Peoria members will help reward these students with a little play for their hard work.
CityLink Bus Shelters - "Let’s BUILD a safer community."
Partner with CityLink to BUILD several additional bus shelters in locations of need to better serve the public transportation needs of Peoria’s citizens.
CityLink provides an environmentally friendly and customer-focused transportation service that connects people to places in an efficient and safe manner. They serve people who work, take classes, go to church, need a doctor, want to shop and hate to find a place to park… kids to seniors. Safe and reliable public transportation is vital to a strong community and BUILD Peoria members will help CityLink better serve our citizens.
