For non-emergency properties the city seeks court authority to demolish, “dangerous” or “unsafe” buildings within the City of Peoria, as defined in Chapter 5 of the Code of the City of Peoria. In order to obtain court authority to demolish a building or structure, all owners as well as persons or entities with a legal interest in the subject property must be notified of the demolition proceeding. Only after all interested parties have been notified of the demolition lawsuit may the City obtain an order of demolition.
