The City of Washburn Comprehensive Plan, adopted by the Common Council in 2007 is undergoing an update as required under Wisconsin’s Comprehensive Planning Law (66.1001, Wis. Stats.). This update will consist of a complete revision of the planning document and the inclusion of an Outdoor Recreation component, which will serve as the City's comprehensive outdoor recreation plan (CORP).
Public Participation in the Plan Update
Wisconsin Statutes, Section 66.1001(4)(a), require that a local governmental unit adopt written procedures that are designed to foster public participation during the plan update process.
The issues identification exercise is conducted to gather input on fundamental issues facing the City of Washburn. Issues can be both positive and negative in nature and are factors to be explored, maximized or mitigated in the updated comprehensive plan. The Community Issues Exercise was conducted with the Plan Commission on February 11th, 2021.
