Thread: Comp plan In Wisconsin

  1. #1

    Comp plan In Wisconsin

    Under the old statutes...is a public hearing required to amend a comprehensive master plan? I think not, but I could be wrong.

    bturk, do you know?

    I would think that a public hearing would be required _everywhere. Every comp plan I've worked with was enacted by an ordinance. Any ordinance, anywhere in the US I think, would require another ordinance to amend, and thus require a public hearing and approval by the governing body.

    Dan,

    I'm not asking what you think. I'm asking what the law is?

    I'm confused. You're asking what the law is? I thought you were asking what the law was.

    Here is a link for you to wade through. it probably contains the info you seek.

    http://folio.legis.state.wi.us

    or try

    http://www.wisconsinplanners.org/law...g_Statutes.htm

    As for opinion, I second Dan, that amendments to plans are typically done in the same manner as adoption and therefore require some sort of public hearing/presentation.

    The real poop

    If your Comp Plan is adopted under the "old" law Wis Stats 62.23, no hearing is required by law.

    Thanks bturk. I knew that you would know this.

    But just so we are clear....your act of kindness in sharing your strong planning intellect does not make us friends. I do not want to mislead you.

    Yellow card. We're civil here. No need to get snotty, especially when someone tries to offer their help.
