About the Project
Eau Claire County has begun the process of updating its zoning and subdivision ordinances (Title 18).
The zoning ordinance regulates the use and improvement of land in the Towns of Brunswick, Clear Creek, Drammen, Lincoln, Otter Creek, Pleasant Valley, Seymour, Union, and Washington (blue shaded area in map below). The subdivision ordinance regulates the division of land throughout the County. The goals of this process are to make our ordinance consistent with current state laws and legal standards, to consider policy adjustments in response to feedback from stakeholders across the county, and to make it easier for all users to understand and apply the ordinance.
Staff developed a "Code Revision Oversight Committee" composed of nine (9) members, with membership drawn from four (4) subcommittees: Agricultural, Residential, Commercial/Industrial, and Professional. The subcommittees conducted meetings, beginning with a SWOT (Strategies, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis, to generate discussions on items within Title 18 that should be considered during the comprehensive zoning update.
Staff is currently working with the consulting firm, MSA Professional Services, to coordinate date(s) and time(s) for stakeholder meetings. Below is a chart outlining approximate dates related to tasks (Click on image for an expanded view):
