I am new to a newly created P&Z body, in a township in Wisconsin. We are a rural area that until recent years, has felt little need to deal with such issues.
One of the many things, that we are now looking into is a driveway ordinance. We have most of the obvious details handled, but one point of concern that I have, is that of turning radius for large emergency vehicles. We do have situations in which people buy large lots and build back in the woods with curved drives. What standards can we look at provide fire trucks, for example, an acceptable turning radius and turnaround.
Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.
