The Town plans, developed locally and adopted by the Dane County Board, include
descriptions of existing conditions, goals and objectives that outline the desired
future of the community, a planned land use map illustrating the pattern of land
uses, and policies that the town believes will achieve its overall goals. The planned
land use map specifies agricultural preservation areas and potential development
areas and is tied directly to policies in the plan text that are used to guide decision
making on such matters as development proposals, zoning changes and land divisions.
Towns periodically amend and update their land use or comprehensive plans. Changes
to town plans that are approved by the County Board become amendments to the Dane County Comprehensive Plan
and are used by the County Zoning and Land Regulation
Committee as criteria for zoning recommendations.
