The Final Draft of the Peoria Sonoran Preservation Program was released on December 24, 2014. The program draft is anticipated to go to City Council 1Q/2015 for consideration and action. The Plan provides for an implementation strategy to identify key areas for special consideration - areas that can be strategically assembled over time into a meaningful network of connected open spaces for a variety of users. This could be accomplished through outright acquisition or developer dedication, agency partnerships and/or regulatory tools that help guide future development in a responsible and sensitive manner.

**Donation Bin Ordinance (NEW)**
On April 7, 2015, the Peoria City Council adopted Ordinance 2015-08 establishing regulatory standards governing donation bins. The new regulations require the issuance of a Temporary Use Permit (TUP) for each bin demonstrating compliance with the new standards. The City will begin accepting TUP applications for donation bins on Monday, May 11, 2015. The TUP application and checklist for donation bins can be accessed here.
