About the Committee

The Land Conservation Committee exercises those duties set forth in Wisconsin Statute 92.07, subject to ordinances and procedures established by the Walworth County Board. In addition, the committee makes recommendations to the board concerning land use planning issues as well as exercises duties regarding lake districts as set forth in Wisconsin Statute 33.26, subject to county board ordinances and procedures. The committee reviews all non-Walworth County government grant applications pertaining to land conservation issues, where the opinion of the county is sought. These applications include, but are not limited to, those made by land owners under the state Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program.
