PEORIA "GREEN YOUR RIDE EVENT" The event is located at Park West on Northern Avenue just west of the Loop 101 in Peoria. Peoria is determined to be a leader in sustainable practices and recently launched a Web page at to explain steps it has taken - such as purchasing cleaner-running city vehicles, modernizing climate-control systems in public buildings and improving water management - as well as suggest things individuals can do to reduce their effects on the environment, conserve energy and meet their needs without compromising the needs of the future. By working with the Bell Road auto dealerships and staging Green Your Ride at Park West, the city also bolsters its Peoria First initiative, which aims to encourage consumer spending in Peoria and keep residents' tax dollars in the community.
