COMPREHENSIVE SMART GROWTH PLAN UPDATE completed for Town of Watertown, WI
Working with the Planning Experts at M&E, the Town of Watertown continues to preserve its unique character as a rural community with the recent update of its Comprehensive "Smart Growth" Plan. By identifying where specific types of growth should occur within its boundaries, the Town continues its commitment to a land use plan that allows its rural character to be maintained and "working" for the benefit of agriculture and agriculture – dependent businesses.
Using the recently constructed State Highway 26 Western By-Pass as a growth management boundary between the Town and the City of Watertown, a balance has been struck to allow the city room to grow with realistic projections. At the same time, Town leaders realize their community possesses many assets and opportunities for agriculture – related businesses that the adjacent city cannot provide.
