Carthage and Drury University to develop plan for city parks

CARTHAGE, Mo. — The city of Carthage may renew its relationship with Drury University for help in developing a visioning  plan for city parks, Tom Short, city administrator, said Wednesday.

He said the proposal, for a possible project in the fiscal year starting in July 2013, was discussed Tuesday’s meeting of the Carthage City Council.

 A city committee is working to carry out elements of a downtown visioning plan that city volunteers and Drury University architecture students developed a year ago. Representatives of “Vision Carthage” told the council last January that first-year priorities would include sidewalk improvements and signs to emphasize the city’s history and its location on Route 66.

The council also approved the purchase of a new mower from VanWall Equipment, Bolivar, for $15,856 and a four-wheel drive tractor from Anderson Car and Tractor, Joplin, for $15,600, both for use by the parks department.
