The monthly meeting of the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission met on July 25 with only eleven of the twenty-one members present. There was not a quorum for a regular meeting, but there were enough members of the executive committee to hold an executive meeting.
The meeting started with a presentation by Jake Hamann of the Peoria Innovation Alliance. He told of plans for an Innovation District in downtown Peoria, as well as plans for Peoria to become a Smart City. Russ Crawford stressed that there should be collaboration between the various groups involved in these projects.
In regular business, the Commission approved letting a five year old line of credit expire since it was used only once and that was four years ago. They approved putting new salary ranges into the employee handbook and giving employees a 2% pay increase. That had already been approved in the budget. The Commission approved the use of a consultant to assist with a Regional Autonomous Mobility Conference that will be held in Peoria this fall. They also discussed the Strategic Planning Session that will be held on Saturday, October 5.
