New Macoupin County Plat Books Now Available

The new 2016 Macoupin County Land Atlas and Plat Book is now available for purchase through the Macoupin County 4-H Foundation.  The new plat book was produce by Rockford Map Publishers.

The Macoupin County 4-H Foundation is distributing this edition of the plat book as a service to the community.  Plat books are a great reference tool not only for landowners, but for business owners as well.  It is a necessary reference guide for industries such as real estate, agriculture, and land development, utilities, and municipal government, to name a few.

The plat book accurately displays parcel boundaries, roadways, waterways, railways, section lines, municipal boundaries, acreage and an index to owners. Latitude/Longitude grids for GPS reference are also provided along with a rural addressing grid. Due to the growing popularity of GPS systems, the Latitude/Longitude grid has become a widespread appeal to recreational users of the book.
