1An Act to amend
59.69 (3) (b) of the statutes; relating to: changing the
2elements that must be included in a county development plan.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, a county may create a county zoning agency, which is a
policy-making body in the county that determines the broad outlines and principles
governing the county's administrative zoning powers. The county agency may direct
the preparation of a county development plan. Currently, if a county creates a
development plan, the plan must include a master plan adopted by a city, or village.
If one exists, it must also include, without changes, the city's or village's official map.
Under this bill, the inclusion of a city's or village's master plan in a county
development plan is optional. The bill also eliminates the requirement that any
official map be included without changes.
For further information see the local fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
