Regional Development Planning

Wisconsin’s regional planning commissions are statutorily charged to “prepare and adopt a master plan for the physical development of the region.” Beyond the legal requirements, regional plans help communities work together and align their plans and policies towards shared regional goals. Regional coordination and intergovernmental collaboration will be particularly important as our region expands to accommodate an estimated 200,000 additional people over the next 30 years.

The 2050 Regional Development Framework serves as a guide for local public and private entities to achieve the desired balance of physical development and preservation in the Dane County region. The Framework’s goals, objectives, and strategies are intended to be incorporated into the plans and policies of local governments, community organizations, and businesses.
