The Kewaunee County Land & Water Committee holds a public hearing Tuesday morning on the updated 20-year county comprehensive plan. The hearing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. in Conference Room 131 of the Land and Water Conservation Department office, 625 Third St., Luxemburg.

The 101-page comprehensive plan is a legal document intended to provide guidance for local and county officials when making land-use decisions. The new document is an update from the plan drafted in 2007 and also incorporates the Kewaunee County Farmland Preservation Plan update.

The plan update can be accessed online through the Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission site at this link.

After the hearing the committee will convene its regular meeting. The agenda includes a resolution to forward to the County Board adopting the comprehensive plan update.
