ST. CROIX COUNTY PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE 

The St. Croix County Community Development Committee will hold a public hearing on Thursday, July 16, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. at the St. Croix County Government Center, County Board Room, 1101 Carmichael Road, Hudson, Wisconsin, to consider amendments to the St. Croix County Farmland Preservation Area Plan Map of the St. Croix County - 2012 – 2035 Comprehensive Plan to reflect the following: 

  1. Revise the Farmland Preservation Area Plan Map to reflect changes in the Town of Troy Zoning Map and Future Land Use Map. The changes will create consistency with the Town of Troy Farmland Preservation Zoning and the County Farmland Preservation Plan Area Map allowing an increase of certified farmland preservation zoning in the Town of Troy.
  2. Revised Land Evaluation and Site Assessment (LESA) score for parcels in the NW1/4 of the NW1/4 of Section 4 in the Town of Springfield allowing inclusion in the Farmland Preservation Plan Area.
  3. Revised LESA score for parcels in the NW1/4 of the SW1/4 of Section 28 in the Town of Baldwin allowing inclusion in the Farmland Preservation Plan Area.

In response to updates to the Town of Troy Zoning Ordinance and Map and requests to review the LESA score for parcels in the Towns of Springfield and Baldwin, St. Croix County revised its farmland preservation area plan map. The amendments will allow for additional land to be zoned into state certified farmland preservation zoning districts in St. Croix County.

The proposed amendments to the Farmland Preservation Area Map, maps, are available for viewing at the office of the St. Croix County Community Development Department at 1101 Carmichael Road, Hudson, Wisconsin. Interested parties may submit written or oral comments on this matter any time prior to the hearing or at the hearing. Please submit written comments, by mail, email or in person as follows:
