Welcome Carlinville residents! Thanks for visiting the Comprehensive Plan web site. This is an exciting time for Carlinville as we develop a vision for the community’s future. We need your help!  The Comprehensive Plan will serve as a guide to the future.  The plan will examine and provide recommendations to make Carlinville a better place to live, work, shop, and learn. Successful plans are community-driven, and that is where you come in.
