LIVINGSTON COUNTY – The County Planning Department is pleased to announce the launch of Livingston County Mapping Assistance Program (M.A.P.), a new interactive feature to the County website which allows users to zoom in to the local level and view information layers such as tax parcel boundaries, trails, parks, wetlands, Agricultural Districts and school district boundaries.
According to a press release from the Livingston County Planning Department, air photo backgrounds from 2005‐2013 are also available, allowing the user to see how an area has changed through the years. Users can also see Bing map imagery and Google Street View with the click of a button.
“We see Livingston County M.A.P. as a useful tool for Livingston County residents and those looking to locate in the county,” said County Planning Director Angela Ellis. “It can also assist local municipal boards in reviewing development proposals. The Planning Department is excited to bring Livingston County mapping to the Internet.”
The online program features a measuring tool that can calculate feet, miles and acres, a drawing tool that allows the user to customize a map with shapes and text, and a neighbor notification tool that identifies properties within a certain distance of a parcel and generates a spreadsheet for mailing labels. Users can also save and print the maps generated in Livingston County M.A.P.
County Administrator Ian Coyle expressed his support for the new tool, adding that it has great potential benefit.
“Livingston County is pleased to offer this mapping service to our residents, businesses
and municipalities,” said Coyle. “It is a shared resource that can benefit the County as a whole.”
