The Wisconsin Comprehensive Planning Law, enacted in 1999, requires each local unit of government, including counties, cities, villages, and towns, to have a comprehensive plan in effect before 2010, if that unit of government engages in any program or action that affects land use. Wis. Act 233 adopted (4/28/04), amended the law to clarify that the planning requirements are limited to those municipalities and counties that manage land use through official mapping, subdivision regulation, zoning or shoreland zoning.
