Comprehensive Plan

Pierce County Comprehensive Plan


The Pierce County Comprehensive Plan was developed through a public participation and review process and is intended to be reflective of the values, goals, and vision of the residents and communities that comprise Pierce County.

The Pierce County Comprehensive Plan is not intended to pre-empt local comprehensive plans developed under Wis. Stats. 66.1001. Rather, the plan is intended to be a framework or “toolbox” which can provide local communities with concepts and ideas to implement the objectives set forth in their own localized comprehensive plans while still maintaining a coordinated and consistent vision with the Pierce County Plan.

The “Context” document discusses how Pierce County’s Comprehensive Plan will be applied to land use decisions on a county-wide basis, as well as how the plan will apply in cases where a town under county zoning has, or has not, adopted a town specific comprehensive plan.
