Peoria residents will vote on several city issues, including an update of the Peoria general plan.

Ballots will ask voters if they approve “the PlanPeoriaAz 2040 General Plan which will be valid for a period of not to exceed 10 years.” 

An update of the Peoria general plan has been in the works since 2018.

Formally known as Proposition 445, the plan proposes a mix of development, open space and parks for Peoria’s future. 

According to the ballot, “This proposal is the culmination of more than two years of work with residents, schools, state and regional leaders and planning agencies to ensure a well planned city that continues to be a great place to live, work and recreate.”

Several Peoria charter amendments will also be on the ballot:

•Proposition 446, excluding partial terms, due to filling a vacant seat, from counting toward term limits for the mayor of Peoria and city council members.

•Proposition 447, increasing the time limit for filling a vacant seat on council from 15 days to 30 days.

•Proposition 448, clarifying that if only two candidates officially qualify for the ballot, only a general election will be held and the candidate receiving the highest number of votes in the general election will be declared elected.
