Comprehensive Plans in
Marathon County

Comprehensive plans incorporate a twenty-year vision and provide a rational basis for local land use decisions.

The comprehensive plan law (§66.1001 WI Stats. Adobe PDF 143 KB) defines the contents of a local comprehensive plan, and requires the plan to be updated at least every 10-years.

According to §66.1001 WI Stats., 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.
