The City of Shawano in the process of updating its comprehensive plan that was last adopted in 2009. Recognizing the need to update the existing comprehensive plan, the community enlisted the assistance of East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission. Similar to the existing comprehensive plan, the update will be developed consistent with Section 66.1001 of the Wisconsin State Statues.
The general approach taken for this process will be multi-faceted in order to meaningfully engage elected officials, state agencies, residents, and the business community on the establishment and implementation of their vision for land use within the community. Information contained within the previous plan will be reviewed and revised to reflect current conditions. This information and data will be reviewed with community leaders, staff, and the general public to ensure that the basis for the updated land use plan is current and well-connected to short-term and long-term trends and challenges.
This webpage is intended to provide information to interested individuals regarding the development of the community’s Comprehensive Plan 2040 Update.
