Back to School Safety

Posted on July 28, 2021 at 5:18 PM by Krislyn Powell

Peoria Unified School District schools started the new school year on Aug. 4. Picking up and dropping off little ones at schools can be hectic for students and their parents. Remember to slow down in school zones, yield to children in the crosswalks and do not drive distracted. To ensure the safety of all students, the Peoria Police Department will be strictly enforcing traffic safety and parking violations in school zones. Peoria Unified School District and Peoria Traffic Engineering work closely to minimize the impact on families, as well as the surrounding communities, while still maintaining the safety of children.

Heat Relief Stations Open in Peoria

Posted on July 28, 2021 at 5:14 PM by Krislyn Powell

The City of Peoria is collaborating with the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) to hold the Heat Relief Regional Network. The city has set up cooling stations that are open throughout the summer. Each location provides water and an area to cool down for those experiencing heat-related stress or illness. Now it is even easier to locate a station through the newly updated Heat Relief Network Mobile App, which includes a Google Map feature that provides a more user-friendly and quicker look at the heat relief locations available in the search vicinity. To begin using the mobile app, visit  https://geo.azmag.gov/maps/hrn/#/. Hydration Station hours will be the same as business/operating hours at each location. To learn more about the Heat Relief Regional Network, visit www.azmag.gov/heatrelief.
