Town of Emerald

“In the year 2035, the Town of Emerald is as green as its name...”

The most complete planning legislation in Wisconsin’s history was enacted in 1999.  The legislation provides communities with the framework to develop a comprehensive plan as a tool to guide future growth.  As of January 1, 2010, all communities that make land use decisions, including zoning and subdivision ordinances, need to base those decisions on their adopted comprehensive plan.

Comprehensive Plan

The Emerald Town Board, with assistance from the St. Croix County Planning & Zoning Department, participated in a joint planning effort to write a comprehensive plan for the Town. The Town Board adopted the Emerald 2010-2035 Comprehensive Plan on March 2, 2011.
