Local development group to help future business owners

News

PEORIA, Ill., — A local development group is making a path for future small business owners in the community.

Urban Acres had an open house Sunday to inform neighbors about a space that will be available soon, for tenants to open start-up businesses.


This will give those looking to start a business the opportunity to enter the market at a lower cost.


Andres Diaz, the owner of the group, also said bringing new businesses to the area will play a huge role in re-developing the community.

I care about my community. In an area where we’re neglected, forgotten about and talked so negatively [about] in terms of what the area looks like, I want to showcase it for what the positives are.

Andres Diaz, Urban Acres owner
