Last month the Clerk emailed Jeff Sanders, Community Planning and Consulting, and copied Dave Johnson with Outagamie County Planning as to why the current land use map was not up to date with the new homes built since 2005. Jeff’s response was that the updates may not have been completed yet and that zoning is different than land use.

The Town of Black Creek Planning Commission will continue reviewing the Comprehensive Plan with Chapter 12.
