Farmington is a remarkable, friendly, and family-oriented community located just 25 miles west of Peoria on Route 116. Residents enjoy the pleasant amenities of rural living yet are within thirty minutes of the more expansive city life, the Greater Peoria Regional airport, and a major interstate highway. The small-town charm makes it an excellent place to enjoy the better things in life and to provide a safe place to raise a family.
Community leaders are working to preserve the community’s history with a vision for development and progress. The City established a Tax Increment Financing District in 2014 that has resulted in financial assistance for the restoration of many of the businesses in the Downtown Historical District as well as to other commercial properties. Since 2018, the use of TIF funds has also enabled numerous homeowners to take advantage of residential renovations and improvements with grants of up to $2000.00 each.
Each year Farmington participates and hosts multiple events and fairs as well as the Spoon River Drive, with parades for the Fourth of July and the Farmington Farmers Homecoming. Learn more about the Farmers by visiting the District #265 website.
Farmington is proud of its K-12 school complex constructed in 2004 and the Farmington Area Public Library building built in 2014, the many choices for worship available, and its parks and friendly, walkable streets.
