City Council hears 1st reading of Ward re-mapping ordinance

City Council hears 1st reading of Ward re-mapping ordinance

3 weeks, 4 days ago by Scott Hardy

Only 2nd, 4th and 5th Wards would see changes

The Quincy City Council has heard a first reading of a proposed ordinance to re-draw some of the city's seven wards. 

The Council heard that first reading Monday night for an ordinance to adopt a new ward map, based on the results of last year's Census. The proposed changes only affect several precincts in the 2nd, 4th and 5th Wards. The other four wards will see no changes at all. After the meeting, Mayor Mike Troup said that the map was the result of a bi-partisan committee led by Republican 1st Ward Alderman Eric Entrup, and Democratic 7th Ward Alderman Jack Holtschlag. Mayor Troup described the process of moving some of the precincts between the the three wards.

The proposed new ward map is available below. The Council heard a first reading of a proposed ordinance to include the newly created Central Business District into the Quincy-Adams-Brown County Enterprise Zone. That area covers some businesses in the Quincy Town Center, as well as at 30th and Broadway. Even if the city passes the ordinance, it still has to be agreed to by both the Adams and Brown County Boards, and the City of Mt. Sterling.

The Council also sent to the Plan Commission a request from 3200 Quincy Holdings LLC to sub-divide the former Shopko building at 32nd and Broadway into two separate entities. The request was made by Stephen Mock with Klingner and Associates. He's not told the City yet what the plans are for the building.
