Council Approves Plan Consultant

Macomb, IL – Macomb aldermen approved an Evanston firm as the city's consultant for preparation of a new comprehensive plan. Teska Associates will work with a local steering committee to gather information for the planners. Mayor Mick Wisslead says the firm asked more questions than its competitor did during a tour of the town. Community Development Coordinator Bob Mahrt said the firm seemed to have a better grasp of how to conduct surveys as well. The study will evaluate current and possible future landuse for up to two miles beyond the city limits.
