WI Attorney General Opines that Coordination Resolutions As Alternative to Comprehensive Plans are Not Recognized Under Wisconsin Law

The Wisconsin Attorney General issued an opinion regarding the “coordination” resolutions that a number of towns in Wisconsin have adopted as an alternative to preparing a comprehensive plan. By adopting the resolution these towns believe it gives them the authority that imposes affirmative duties on the federal government, the state, and other local governments to coordinate their land use activities with those of the towns adopting the resolution. The Attorney General Opinion concludes that such a “coordination” power does not exist under Wisconsin law.

See, OAG-3-10 (6/22/2010).
