Pleasant Prairie Community Development Department

Comprehensive Plan

The first Comprehensive Plan for Pleasant Prairie, completed in 1967, was used to direct development to the 1990 design year. In 1996, updates were made to the 1967 Plan, with the adoption of a comprehensive plan for the Kenosha Urban Planning Area, to help guide the Village through 2010. The comprehensive update, recently adopted by the Village Board, will see the Village through the year 2035.

What is a Comprehensive Plan?

A Comprehensive Plan is the community's guide and framework for the planning of future growth and development. Section 66.1001 of the Wisconsin State Statues requires that, after January 1, 2010, all programs and actions of the Village that affect land use must be guided by, and consistent with, the Village’s adopted Comprehensive Plan. It further requires that the Comprehensive Plan contain the following nine (9) elements:

• Issues and Opportunities

• Housing

• Transportation

• Utilities and Community Facilities

• Agricultural, Natural, and Cultural Resources

• Economic Development

• Intergovernmental Cooperation

• Land Use

• Implementation

The Comprehensive Plan includes detailed recommendations relating to:

• the protection and preservation of natural resources and cultural resources;

• the proper arrangement of various residential, commercial, industrial, institutional and park/recreational land uses;

• the identification of population and housing projections;

• the development of transportation, bicycle, and pedestrian facilities;

• the development of park facilities;

• the identification of potential sites for neighborhood schools and parks; and

• the identification of public utilities and community facilities to meet the needs of the future population.
