Our proposed presentation would focus on VISION 2050, the advisory land use and transportation plan for the seven-County Southeastern Wisconsin Region. Three topics regarding VISION 2050 would be discussed, including land information used to develop VISION 2050, an overview of the recommended land use plan, and plan implementation.

Key regional inventories, including inventories of land use, natural resources, and park and open space sites, were some of the primary data sources used to develop the recommended land use plan. Our presentation will discuss how this land information was gathered and used in conjunction with parcel boundary data provided by the counties, comprehensive plans adopted by local and county governments, and sewer service area boundaries and population and employment projection data developed by the Commission.

We will also discuss the key VISION 2050 land use recommendations, including the recommended compact development pattern. Compact development has several benefits, including minimizing impacts on natural and agricultural resources, encouraging the development of walkable neighborhoods that support public transit service, and reducing the costs of local government infrastructure and new housing. Finally we will discuss plan implementation, which ultimately relies on the actions of local, county, State, and Federal units of government as well as the private sector. Comprehensive planning will be discussed as one opportunity for implementing VISION 2050 at the county and local government levels.
