Map Lack Slows Carthage Planning

Carthage, IL – Planning for Carthage's next development area is being slowed by the lack of current maps. 336 Impact Study Committee Chairman John Huston says his group is waiting on plat maps that show the present zoning and land use. When they come, he says the group will finalize zoning in the region along Route 336 where it will pass the town. Huston says the group has already discussed issues such as aesthetics and possible infrastructure improvements. Huston hopes to come up with a time line for the rest of the study at next month's meeting.
