Executive Summary for Section 8: Intergovernmental Cooperation
The Intergovernmental Cooperation Element will be a compilation of objectives, goals, policies, maps, and programs for joint planning and decision making with other jurisdictions, including school districts and adjacent local governmental units, for siting and building public facilities and sharing public services. This element will analyze the relationship of the communities to school districts and adjacent local governmental units, and to the region, the state, and other governmental entities. The statement shall identify existing or potential conflicts between the community and other governmental units that are specified in this paragraph and describe processes to resolve such conflicts.
A community's relationship with neighboring communities, federal, state, and local agencies can impact residents in terms of planning, providing services, and citing public facilities. Examining these relationships and identifying existing or potential conflicts can help the community efficiently address these situations. In coastal communities, intergovernmental cooperation is even more significant when communities share coastlines or resources. The activities of one community can have a direct impact upon its neighbors. Section 8 of "A Guide to Planning for Coastal Communities in Wisconsin" discusses issue identification and provides general information on coastal resource management authorities as well as technical assistance and resources.
