Land Use

Land use in the Town of Verona is currently guided by the 2006 Comprehensive Plan and the zoning code is administered by Dane County with input from the Town. Several efforts are underway that could affect how the Town plans for the future.  

 

There are three major activities that will greatly impact the Town.  The first is a recently adopted Boundary Agreement with the City of Verona, which will provide more predictability about City growth and more options for Town growth.  The second is the potential for zoning ordinance changes with the Dane County or with the Dane County Town Association.  The third is the development of a 20-year vision of Town land use.  

 

The boundary agreement with the City of Verona was adopted on June 20, 2016. The agreement can be found below. As a result of this agreement a joint planning committee has been established to take review certain land splits and rezonings. Notices of joint planning committee meetings can be found on the Public Notices section of this site.

Exhibit 2 Planning Areas

Exhibit 3 Town Neighborhoods 1 to 3

Exhibit 5 Ice Age Trail Corridor

 

The Town’s Plan Commission is currently drafting a new comprehensive plan that will coordinate with the policies found in the boundary agreement and also provide more detailed land use policies. 

 

A recent change to state statutes now allows for Dane County Town’s to either operate under a zoning code administered by the County, or “opt out” and share a zoning code with other Towns. The Town is reviewing the new draft code and weighing the impacts of opting out. See the Public Notice page details of upcoming hearings.
