You are invited to participate in an update to the City’s Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Code. Public meeting dates will be posted to the website and shared via social media.

Project Overview

The City of Waupaca’s existing Comprehensive Plan was adopted in October 2007, as is now out of date. State law requires communities such as Waupaca, which administer zoning ordinances and other land use controls, to update their Comprehensive Plan at least every 10 years. Updating the City’s Comprehensive Plan concurrently with a Zoning Code Update provides a unique opportunity to think holistically and long-term about the community’s future, while also taking concrete actionable steps to achieve that vision through the modification of existing ordinances. City staff will lead the Comprehensive Plan update and a consultant will lead the Zoning Code update. The City’s Community Development Department will manage and provide oversight for both projects.

Project Team + Roles

Project Approach

  • The overall approach is to first educate and engage the community in a well-informed discussion of the future of Waupaca, including identification of key issues and opportunities on the short and long-term horizons. Secondly, we will work with Plan Commission to identify relevant goals and objectives to frame the Comprehensive Plan. Finally, we will prepare the Plan itself, with a focus on 5-year action items to guide implementation.
