Executive Summary for Section 1: Introduction
Starting in 2010, Wisconsin's local and regional governments must base decisions that affect land use on an adopted Comprehensive Plan. According to §66.1001 Wis. Stats., a local Comprehensive Plan should be comprised, at minimum, of the following nine elements: Issues and Opportunities; Housing; Transportation; Utilities and Community Facilities; Agricultural, Natural and Cultural Resources; Economic Development; Intergovernmental Cooperation; Land Use; and Implementation. Coastal resources relate to most, if not all, of the Comprehensive Plan elements. Designed to complement the element guidebooks, "A Guide to Planning for Coastal Communities in Wisconsin" provides additional resources so communities can focus on the coastal-related issues within each of the nine elements in their Comprehensive Plans.
