Planning

July 24, 2017

In 2015, the City began the process of updating its Comprehensive Plan, which was originally adopted in 2006.  The Comprehensive Plan serves as a guide for the City Plan Commission, Common Council and other City officials as they make decisions about the long term growth and improvement of the community.

A comprehensive plan does not provide a detailed design for every parcel, but rather establishes a general policy for future community change.  It provides a foundation for decisions on public programs and activities such as:  land use, growth and annexation, parks, economic development, public utilities, streets, downtown revitalization, various neighborhood improvements and zoning.  The private sector also uses the plan as a guide for investing in the community.

Questions or comments on the plan may be directed to City Planner, Brad Lenz at 715-261-6760 or by email.
