Election Over, Nauvoo Turns to Zoning Issues

NAUVOO, ILLINOIS -- Newly re-elected Mayor Tom Wilson and the Nauvoo City Planning and Zoning Commission hosted a public input session on Monday to discuss an upcoming growth ordinance that will be presented to the City Council for adoption.

"Zoning will be one of the city's biggest issues in coming months," said Mayor Wilson. "Bus and truck route ordinances most likely will be established to re-route traffic away from the downtown area."

City officials have continued to voice concern that the rebuilding of the multi-million dollar Nauvoo Temple by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints would drastically change the community of about 1,200 residents. Ground was broken in 1999 for the temple and Nauvoo's real estate market has been active ever since.

The initial response to the rebuilding of the temple, caused the city to impose a moratorium on new building permits while they await the adoption of a zoning ordinance and the completion of a comprehensive land-use plan. The March, 1999 a moratorium was imposed on new commercial and multi-family residential sites, after a Utah firm announced plans to build 24 two-story, two-bedroom units at 350 S. Fulmer St.

Copies of the 160-page draft of the ordinance and accompanying zoning map are available for public inspection at Nauvoo City Hall during regular business hours. Hard copies of the draft and map are available for $15. A two-day notice is required for the preparation of purchased materials. A floppy disk and accompanying map will be available for $5.
