PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) –

Tackling a new endeavor to bring a stadium back to life. Community leaders are hoping to revitalize Peoria Public Schools Stadium.

Those behind this initiative say the stadium – built in 1905 – is historic and they would hate to see the space go mostly unused.

Their first project? They want to upgrade their sign.

“We’re looking to place an LED sign at the entrance to the stadium, to help raise money to cover the maintenance of the stadium,” said supporter Brian Michael.

Then they want to bring back underrepresented sports, like cricket. One leader thinks it’s a great thing.

“I think it’s going to bring back the stadium we had back in the day,” said Shaelyn Johnson.
