Town of Newbold Comprehensive Plan 2021

The purpose of a Comprehensive Plan is to guide future growth and development in the Town over the next 10 to 20 years. A comprehensive plan provides the vision and direction for natural resource protection, housing and economic development, transportation and community facilities, land use, intergovernmental relations, and other factors that together form the community’s future. Comprehensive planning was enacted to encourage long-range planning for communities and provide consistency in land use decision making.

The Comprehensive Plan is a long-range policy document consisting of goals, objectives, and policies prepared to meet the State’s definition of a comprehensive plan as defined under Section 66.1001.

Grow North Region Housing Study – 2021

Communities that can offer a variety of housing types that are affordable across a wide spectrum of income levels are significantly more capable of providing the conditions necessary to attract and retain residents of all life phases. Housing impacts more than just residents, as housing also impacts transportation, employment, economic development, land use patterns, and communities themselves. The connection between housing and work is a fundamental function of any transportation system, as many workers are required to travel to their jobs.

Wisconsin Regional Orthoimagery Consortium (WROC)

The Wisconsin Regional Orthoimagery Consortium (WROC) is a multi-entity group. The goal of the consortium is to build and sustain a multi-participant program to acquire digital orthoimagery and elevation data throughout Wisconsin. The WROC approach brings a number of potential benefits to participants including cost savings, specifications and standards support, customized datasets, data sharing between members and partners, and procurement support.

Next round

The next round of WROC is underway. North Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (NCWRPC) will once again coordinate and lead the Consortium. In 2021, the RPC extended its agreement with Ayres Associates to facilitate the Consortium and provide geospatial services to its members and partners.

There will be options for participation in 2023, 2024, and 2025. A number of member counties will be going to a 3-year cycle starting in 2023. Another group of counties will fly in 2024.The largest group will participate again in 2025, keeping the consistency of the 5-year cycle. Member counties flying in 2023, 2024, and 2025 will be eligible for partner funding.

The aerial mapping services provided under WROC will continue to evolve to meet the needs of local government members and partner organizations. This will be achieved through a coordinated, county-by-county approach over the next three years, with participation peaking in 2025. Program representatives will work with all private, federal, and state partners to build the program into regional datasets. WROC has a stated goal of achieving statewide coverage by the end of 2025.

WROC representatives will be hosting meetings across the state to discuss the consortium approach and participation options for 2023-25. If you are interested in meeting, please contact program managers Andy Faust or Zach Nienow
