Town Comprehensive Plan Update

The Town's Comprehensive Plan provides a 20 year vision for the physical, social, and economic development of the Town.  The Plan is comprehensive in scope and provides goals, objectives, policies, maps, and programs to help guide development of the Town.  All ordinances, such as rezonings and other land use decisions, must be consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.  The Plan provides guidance and direction to help the Town make rational, consistent decisions that are consistent with the values and desires of the residents.
By State law, every municipality in Wisconsin is required to adopt a Comprehensive Plan that includes, at a minimum 9 required elements.  The 9 required elements are:
  1. Issues and Opportunities
  2. Housing
  3. Transportation
  4. Utilities and Community Facilities
  5. Agricultural, Natural and Cultural Resources
  6. Economic Development
  7. Intergovernmental Cooperation
  8. Land Use
  9. Implementation
The Town's Comprehensive Plan was adopted in September 2009 and is valid for 10 years.  The Town Board has appointed a 7-member Plan Commission to work with the community and County Planning staff to evaluate and update the Plan.  This process entails extensive public participation and involves a review of each element, including the Future Land Use Map, to ensure that the Plan accurately reflects the vision, values, and desires of the community.
