What is a Comprehensive Plan?
A Comprehensive Plan is an ordinance adopted by the Village Board which is used as a guide for the physical, social and economic development of the Village that is adopted under Wis. Stats. 66.1001 and Wis. Stats. 62.23 (2) or (3). The Plan provides general awareness and understanding of Village’s planning goals and objectives when evaluating the development projects.  

Comprehensive planning guides and accomplishes a coordinated, adjusted and harmonious development of the Village by promoting public health, safety, morals, order, convenience, prosperity or the general welfare of existing and future needs of the community, as well providing an efficient and economic process for development.  



Comprehensive Plan Update
The initial Comprehensive Plan for Pleasant Prairie was prepared and adopted in 1967, then updated in 1996 and updated again in 2009. The Village of Pleasant Prairie 2050 Comprehensive Plan is the fourth generation Plan that will update the current 2035 Comprehensive Plan.  

This 2050 Comprehensive Plan re-examines and updates the Village’s visions, goals, objectives, policies and implementation strategies to continue to foster a sustainable and livable Village. It identifies how the community has developed and how the community will continue to evolve over the next 25-30 years. The goal of this Plan is to set forth a “roadmap” that will provide continued direction for the Village as a desirable place to live, work and play. 

The Village Board and Village Plan Commission shall continue to refer to the Comprehensive Plan as a matter of course in their deliberations on planning issues and give the Plan due weight when making decisions on such matters, particularly with regard to the Wisconsin Statutory requirements to ensure for consistency between the Village Comprehensive Plan and the Village Zoning and Land Division and Development Control Ordinances.



Informational Meetings
The Village Plan Commission will hold and consider updates to the chapters of the Comprehensive Plan at regularly scheduled Plan Commission meetings during the planning process. The Village Board will also hold public meetings throughout the process and is required to adopt the Comprehensive Plan by Ordinance.
