Several communities are moving ahead with updating
their comprehensive plans. We have prepared a basic scope of
services with costs for communities to review to enable each one to
make a determination as to which option is best for them. If you
would like us to attend an upcoming governing board or plan
commission meeting to discuss the process for updating the
Comprehensive Plan and any other plans and/or zoning ordinances,
please contact Brandon Robinson or me for more information.
We are still seeking individuals to fill three
Commissioner vacancies. There are direct Governor's
appointment openings in Florence and Marinette counties and a joint
county board/Governor's appointment in Kewaunee County. All three
openings are 6-year appointments. All interested individuals are
required to complete and submit a short application to the
Governor's Appointment Secretary in order to be considered for an
appointment to the Commission by Governor Walker. If you have any
questions or in need of additional information on the process to
apply for one of the openings, please contact me.
The Bay-Lake RPC is a full service planning agency. If
your community or county is in need of planning, GIS, or grant
administration assistance, please contact our office. We are
willing to discuss your needs and identify the appropriate
financial and technical resources in which to address them.

Affordable Office Space for Rent
The Commission has four open offices that it is willing to
sub-lease on a short or longer term basis to an organization
seeking good, quality office space that is close to downtown
amenities. The reduced lease rate (includes
utilities) is $7.00 a sq.ft. for the year. Parking spaces are
$15.00 per month. The staff will work with any organization on
their internet and phone service needs, which will be separate from
the Commission's current operating system.
Commission staff are continuing to accept requests for
demographic and economic information using EMSI software. All
counties and local units of government, along with planning and
economic development partners, are eligible to receive this service
through the Commission. The data found on EMSI Analyst and the
reports generated using the information can be very valuable in
drafting grant applications, preparing site search proposals, as
well as evaluating local and regional economic conditions for
future projects and investments.
Please contact Brandon Robinson or Josh Schedler at (920)
448-2820 for questions/concerns or to submit an EMSI Analyst
