Forest County began developing a comprehensive plan in the summer of 2008. Towns that do not already have a comprehensive plan in place, or in process, are working with NCWRPC to create their own comprehensive plan.
The Forest County Comprehensive Plan, although a separate document from the local Comprehensive Plans, will blend together these local plans into one. The town plans will be completed in 2009, and the county plan will follow in early 2010.
The comprehensive plan law (§66.1001 WI Stats. 113 KB) defines the contents of a local comprehensive plan as a combination of nine chapters—Issues & Opportunities; Natural, Cultural, & Agricultural Resources; Housing; Transportation; Economic Development; Land Use; Utilities & Community Facilities; Intergovernmental Cooperation; and Implementation.
According to §66.1001 WI Stats., beginning on January 1, 2010, if a town, village, city, or county engages in official mapping, subdivision regulation, or zoning, those actions must be consistent with that community's comprehensive plan.
|NOTICE: Adopted revisions to the plan may have changed maps and/or text in these online versions of the plans. Please contact the Forest County Zoning Department for any adopted revisions to any of the Comprehensive Plans in Forest County.|
