Greene County Extension Office Releases County Plat Book

The Greene County Extension Office has announced the release of the new Greene County Plat Book The book features the landownership map with townships and ranges in the county.

The map also includes new enhanced LIDAR aerial maps that provide an almost 3D topographical look.

“This information is valuable to anyone interested, particularly those who own land in Greene County,” David Burton, county engagement specialist for University of Missouri Extension, said in a statement. “Prospective or adjoining property owners, hunters, foresters, timber, and petroleum industry personnel, emergency services, and many others could benefit from this valuable information.”

The map includes a School District’s map, Watersheds Map, Landowner Index, and Municipal Maps of Ash Grove, Battlefield, Fair Grove, Republic, Strafford, and Willard.

The last time the Extension Office produced a plat book was 2011 and sold out.

“We had several requests for a new plat book at the start of this year,” said Burton. “The county no longer produces plat books. So our council members funded this project upfront to have these books produced.”

The current book is available while supplies last for $50 at the local office inside the Springfield Botanical Center, 2400 South Scenic in Springfield.

More information can be obtained by contacting David Burton at the extension office at 417-881-8909.
