2011 Wisconsin Local Land Use Regulations and Comprehensive Planning Status Report
(For more current info on plans submitted to DOA, see Library of Plans page.)

Based on the 2011 Report, it is estimated that 100 county and municipal governments exercise local land use regulations subject to the Comprehensive Planning Law's consistency requirement, but have not adopted a comprehensive plan and are not completing one. When local governments make changes to zoning, land division, or official mapping ordinances, they must do so consistent with a comprehensive plan (s. 66.1001(3), Wis. Stats.)
