Smart Growth
A comprehensive, or smart growth, plan is a local government's guide to community physical, social, and economic development. Comprehensive or smart growth plans are not meant to serve as land use regulations in themselves. Instead, they provide a rational basis for local land use decisions with a 20-year vision for future planning and community decisions. Plans must be developed in accordance with Section 66.1001 of the Wisconsin State Statutes.
Year 2025 Plan
In May 2007, Calumet County adopted its Year 2025 Smart Growth Plan. The plan was comprehensively amended in February 2012 to reflect updated statistical and factual data. The plan contains the following elements:
  • Agricultural, Natural, and Cultural Resources
  • Economic Development
  • Housing
  • Implementation
  • Intergovernmental Cooperation
  • Issues and Opportunities
  • Land Use
  • Transportation
  • Utilities and Community Facilities
The plan is broken up into two parts:
  1. Inventory and Trends Report
  2. Recommendations Report 
Towns Adopting the Plan
The Towns of Brothertown, Charlestown, Chilton, New Holstein, Rantoul, Stockbridge and Woodville and the Village of Potter adopted the county’s Smart Growth Plan, but developed land use chapters specific for their community. The county adopted and incorporated the individual township land use chapters into the county’s overall Smart Growth Plan in February 2008. These chapters were updated and subsequently adopted by the county as part of the February 2012 comprehensive amendments. The Towns of Charlestown and Stockbridge have not adopted the 2012 amendments. However, the amendments were adopted into the county's plan and are in effect by the county.

Communities not mentioned above developed their comprehensive plans independent of the county. To view those plans, you need to contact those municipalities directly.
