Town Land Use Plan

Town Land Use Plan

Home » Town Government » Town Land Use Plan
In 1999, the Wisconsin Legislature passed the Comprehensive Planning Law, which required certain land use actions of a local governmental unit, such as a town, to be consistent with the comprehensive plan of that unit. That meant a town had to have a comprehensive plan in effect with which its actions would be consistent.

Planning allows a town to carry out an orderly, transparent process to develop a vision for its future and to set goals and establish priorities for making land-use decisions. It involves balancing preservation of agricultural, natural, and cultural resources and economic development. Responsibility for preparation of the plan lies with the town plan commission.

2009 Comprehensive Land Use Plan, Revised 2018
Ordinance adopted by the Town Board on Sept. 8, 2009; revision adopted May 22, 2018, for inclusion of Transfer of Development Rights and Super Sending Areas. The plan is updated once every 5 years. This is the most current version.
