Drones Fly Over Friday

The Village of Cairo is updating its comprehensive plan. The comprehensive plan is a study that includes a compilation of current land use and makes recommendations on future land use. This information is beneficial to the Village board and any Cairo committees assisting with village development. Comprehensive plans are typically updated once every 5 to 7 years.

Cairo’s new comprehensive study includes drone mapping. Weather permitting drones are set to fly over Cairo Friday, September 11th to complete mapping.

In the coming weeks you may also see a gentleman driving and stopping frequently on Cairo streets making notes. This individual is also mapping the area as a part of the comprehensive plan.

Thank You for Cleaning Up

Sue and I want to thank everyone that helped with the Cairo Cleanup.  Special thanks to Cornell and Steve for taking care of the community pile in our alley.

Best part about living in a village is that everyone is willing to help each other whenever it’s needed. —–Sue and Ron Hester
