Plans and Major Studies

Public Works is responsible for a number of various plans and policies affecting the residents of Walworth County, and works with organizations such as the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission "SEWRPC" in developing these plan documents.  

SEWRPC has conducted reviews and updates of the regional land use and transportation plan, in part, to address Federal requirements, of the VISION 2050 plan that was developed in 2016 and updated in 2020.  Refer to these links for more information:  Vision 2050 (PDF), Vision 2050 Review and Update (PDF), and Vision 2050 Volume III (PDF).
