ARGO – Mayor Betty Bradley announced at the regular meeting of the Argo City Council on Monday, Nov. 29, that a zoning survey for the city of Argo is now available at https://www.argoalive.com. The survey is part of the city’s 2022 comprehensive plan, which will address all zoning in the city, including residential and businesses.
“It’s a questionnaire for people to start filling out and send back as to the wants they would like to see in Argo,” Bradley said during the pre-council work session.
According to the Argo ALIVE website, “The City of Argo initiated a process in the Spring of 2021 to generate a comprehensive plan and a new zoning ordinance to guide the future development of this growing suburban community. This process, called Argo ALIVE, will draw upon data analytics, community and stakeholder vision, and methodical recommendations to create an action plan for Argo to use for growth management, funding requests, and community marketing. The final product will be a living document forged by and for the Argo community.”
