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.

Enjoy winter in beautiful Wisconsin and Go Phoenix and Badgers!

Announcements

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.

EMSI Analyst

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 data request.
