ST. CROIX COUNTY: 12/19/13 Hearing - Town of Forest Zoning

Monday, December 9, 2013 - 11:20pm

Town of Forest Zoning Ordinance and Zoning Map
The St. Croix County Community Development Committee will hold a public hearing on Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. or shortly thereafter, at the Hudson Government Center’s County Board Room, 1101 Carmichael Road, Hudson, Wisconsin, to consider the following:
1) Town of Forest Adopting Town Zoning Ordinance and Zoning Map. The Town of Forest adopted a resolution on October 15, 2013, pursuant to Wis. Stat. 61.35, authorizing the Town Board of the Town of Forest to enact Town Zoning Ordinances. Since St. Croix County has general zoning, a Town exercising village powers must receive County Board approval of their Town zoning ordinance prior to it becoming effective. The CDC will hold a public hearing and provide a recommendation for County Board action.
The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a hearing shortly thereafter on Shoreland Overlay Districts. Immediately following, the hearing on the Town of Forest Zoning Ordinance and corresponding zoning map will begin.
Copies of the Town adopted zoning ordinance and zoning map are available at the Community Development Department, Government Center, Hudson and the Agriculture Service & Education Center, Baldwin. For minutes and background information related to the Town of Forest Comprehensive Plan and Town adoption of the zoning ordinance and map, please contact the Town of Forest directly.
Oral and written comments will be accepted through the end of the hearing. Comments may also be submitted prior to, or at the hearing; in person, by mail, fax or email to:
