Wisconsin: Local Smart Planning Grants Enabling Statute

This Wisconsin law supports planning efforts that achieve specific smart growth goals, such as: the redevelopment of lands with existing infrastructure and public services; the encouragement of neighborhood designs that support a range of transportation choices; the protection of natural areas, including wetlands, wildlife habitats, lakes, woodlands, open spaces and groundwater resources; the protection of economically productive areas, including farmland and forests, and, the encouragement of land uses, densities and regulations that promote efficient development patterns and relatively low municipal, state governmental and utility costs.
