Mulling Metamora

By Phil Luciano (as written in the May 2022 issue of Peoria Magazine)


METAMORA – As he scans the Peoria area, John Cummings sees Metamora as sitting in a uniquely attractive spot.
It’s close enough to Peoria (as well as Bloomington-Normal) for quick access to work, shopping and entertainment. But unlike some bedroom communities, it’s detached enough to carry a small-town feel.
“We’re not a suburb,” Cummings said. “We can provide what most people want.”
The numbers bear him out. Between 2010 and 2020, the village saw a 7.4 percent boost in population, to 3,904 people. That’s significant in light of the population decreases not only statewide but in Woodford County as a whole, and even in a nearby Germantown Hills that had experienced explosive growth in previous decades.  So, what’s the draw to Metamora?
