The Town’s Comprehensive Plan is a policy document that guides the future of the Town. It is primarily used to make decisions about lot splits and new development. The Town’s previous plan was adopted in 2006, and for two years the Plan Commission has been working on a substantial update. A new plan was adopted by the Town Board on November 13, 2018. However, it must also be adopted by Dane County. It is expected that the new plan will be fully adopted by February 2019.
