Rotary Comprehensive Plan Viewing April 21, 2016

The Village of Waunakee and the Town of Westport are seeking your input as we jointly update our Comprehensive Plan and Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan. These plans are important documents for charting our future as mature and vibrant communities. Staff use these plans to guide decision making of the elected body and related committees, apply for federal and state grants, and advise potential developers. These plans are also used when making annual budgeting decisions and prioritizing various public projects. But to be clear, these plans do not and should not reflect the interests of just our elected officials and staff. What is most important, is that these plans reflect the desires and hopes of all of the community stakeholders, citizens, taxpayers, and business owners.
