Currently, the Commission has 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, please feel free to
Commissioners adopted preliminary drafts of the
2015-2016 Work Program and
2015 Budget during their full Commission
on September 12th. We are requesting assistance and input from
county and local government staff and partner organizations to
submit projects for incorporation into the Work Program. This will
help ensure there are adequate staff resources available to
complete the projects on time and within budget.
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 another winter in beautiful Wisconsin and Go

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.
