When I took over the creation of this map in 2010, the map hadn't been updated in at least 10 years. It was obvious to me that streets were incorrect and businesses indicated that hadn't been in existence for several years. First I had to get the street map file from the architects and convert it for use in Illustrator. I then worked with the city planner to make corrections and get his approval of the map every year. I also worked with the county planner to ensure the county maps were correct also. Finally I placed the ads or created them, whichever was needed, and created the cover. The photo used for this year was one I had taken at the new community pool and was approved for use.
The map was handed out at the Chamber of Commerce, sent to prospective new residents and used by the city police and fire departments.
