The Town of Jackson recognizes the importance of public participation in the planning process.  As such, a goal during the compreehensive planning process will be to inform and involve the public in the planning process.

I.      Plan Development:

Throughout the plan process, the Plan Commission will provide oversight for the update of the Comprehensive Plan.  The Plan Commission will also recommend adoption of the Public Participation Plan to the Town Board.

The public participation plan will incorporate the following:

1.   All meetings for the planning process will be posted and open to the public.

2.   Plan related materials will be available at the Town Hall for review by the public by appointment only.  (Please call         the Clerk at 608-586-6391 to make an appointment.)

3.   The draft plan and maps will be available on a website for review by the public.

4.   A public hearing will be held to solicit comment from the public.

5.   The Comprehensive Plan will be diistributed as outlined in state statute.

The Plan Commission will review and recommend adoption of the Comprehensive Plan to the Town Board.

II.     Implementation, Evaluation & Update:

The Comprehensive Plan will be used as a general guideline for development in the Town.  The Plan wiill support the existing zoning and other regulations that tthe Town has in place.

As with all plans, it is critical for the Comprehensive Plan to be maintained and updated on a regular basis to keep it current as things change.
