Beginning January 2010, Wisconsin's local and regional governments must base decisions that affect zoning, official mapping, and subdivision regulations on an adopted comprehensive plan [s.66.1001 Wisconsin Statutes]. As a result, an increasing number of communities are adopting new plans or updating existing plans to be consistent with the new laws. The Great Lakes Coastal Community Planning site is meant to be used a tool to support planning efforts along the Lake Michigan and Lake Superior coasts of Wisconsin.
Sharing information resources on coastal wetlands helps foster collaborative and more strategic conservation efforts.
There are many existing partnerships, plans, reports, training materials, decision tools and other valuable information resources that can help inform strategic decision making to protect and restore Great Lakes coastal wetlands. On this page we bring these information resources together with brief descriptions and direct links to help you quickly find those resources that meet your individual needs.
