Culver Town Manager, David Schoeff, went before the Marshall County Commissioners Monday morning to request the use of GIS data in the Town of Culver’s compilation of a comprehensive plan.
Houseal-Lavigne of Chicago is working with the town to develop the plan and the data needed includes parcel information. GIS data for the parcels inside town limits and the two-mile jurisdiction are requested along with some county data.
Schoeff told the commissioners that Houseal-Lavigne understands the fees and rules that go along with acquiring the data. The commissioners stated that a signed agreement must be filed before any data would be released. That is expected to be filed in the Auditor’s office yet this week.
Schoeff invited the commissioners to a public meeting that is scheduled for April 22 that is geared toward gathering public input for the comprehensive plan. A draft of the comprehensive plan may be ready by fall.
