Land Information Plan
The State of Wisconsin requires a "countywide plan for land records modernization," in order to participate in the Wisconsin Land Information Program (WLIP). The WLIP provides financial and technical support to local governments for land records modernization efforts. The purpose of this document is twofold:
- to meet WLIP funding eligibility requirements necessary for receiving grants and retaining fees for land information;
- to plan for county land records modernization in order to improve the efficiency of government and provide improved government services to businesses and county residents.
This plan is an update of the Eau Claire County Land Records Modernization Plan, first adopted in April 1992, and subsequently updated in 1995, 1998, 1999, 2005, 2010, and 2014. The plan updates the goals and objectives for land records modernization in Eau Claire County, describes progress made on modernization activities proposed, and lists the modernization projects that will be carried out during the three year planning horizon for this update.
