[HISTORY: Adopted by the Village Board of the Village of Cottage Grove 4-17-2000. Amendments noted where applicable.]

§ 23-1 Intent.

The purpose of this chapter is to establish the Village of Cottage Grove Comprehensive Master Plan as the Official Comprehensive Master Plan of the Village, as defined by Wisconsin Statutes. The Comprehensive Master Plan is intended to promote public health, safety, and welfare of the Village by effectively guiding long-range growth and development within the Village and its statutory extraterritorial planning jurisdiction. The Comprehensive Master Plan provides goals, objectives, policies, and recommendations for future land use, transportation, housing, economic development, utilities, community facilities, agricultural resources, natural resources, cultural resources, intergovernmental relations, and implementation. Implementation of the Comprehensive Master Plan is accomplished through other sections of the Village Code of Ordinances, more detailed plans, public investments, private development decisions, intergovernmental cooperation, and citizen involvement.

§ 23-2 Statutory authority.

The authority for the Village of Cottage Grove to prepare and adopt a Comprehensive Master Plan is established under ss. 62.23 and 66.0295, Wisconsin Statutes. Section 66.0295(2) specifies the required contents of a Comprehensive Master Plan.

§ 23-3 Adoption of plan.

The Village of Cottage Grove Comprehensive Master Plan, adopted by resolution of the Plan Commission on March 8, 2000, and by ordinance of the Village Board on April 17, 2000, is the official Comprehensive Master Plan of the Village of Cottage Grove.[1] The above-mentioned Comprehensive Master Plan supersedes and replaces all Comprehensive Master Plans previously adopted by the Village, except as explicitly provided for in the Comprehensive Master Plan document or under § 23-5 below. The text, maps, tables, graphics, goals, objectives, policies, and recommendations of the adopted Comprehensive Master Plan are intended to serve as a guide as the Village undertakes subsequent actions to implement the plan, except as otherwise provided for under Wisconsin Statutes.
