JEFFERSON -- Jefferson County, with input from residents and stakeholders, is working to update two of its long-range planning documents that outline strategies for growth and preservation of the county's assets and resources.
A series of upcoming meetings throughout the county will offer the public an opportunity to provide input that will be used to inform the future of Jefferson County.
The plans will cover the topics of land use; agricultural, natural, and cultural resources; transportation; housing; economic development; community facilities; and intergovernmental cooperation.
Residents are invited to learn about the plan and provide input at four public meetings. Attendees at all four meetings will be introduced to the comprehensive plan process and provide input that will be used to develop a plan for the next 20 years. Presentations at each meeting will be given at 6 p.m. followed by engagement activities. The public is invited to provide input on these important plans at one of the meetings.
The following Jefferson County public meetings are set:
-- June 24, Bank of Lake Mills, 400 Bernard St., Watertown.
-- June 26, Palmyra-Eagle High School, 123 Burr Oak St., Palmyra.
-- July 10, Dwight Foster Memorial Library, 209 Merchants Ave., Fort Atkinson.
