Plan Commission Comprehensive Plan Amendment
The Village Plan Commission is currently working on an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan. As part of the planning process the Plan Commission collected survey results and held a Kick-off meeting and SWOT Analysis (Strenths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats). The Plan Commission also reviewed the results of the survey. The results of the SWOT analysis and survey can be viewed by clicking the links below.
The Village Plan Commission will soon be approving a draft of the proposed Comprehensive Plan Amendment. Once approved the draft will be available for review and a public informational meeting will be held. The Village Plan Commission will then recommend the Comprehensive Plan Amendment to the Village Board for approval. Prior to approval a public hearing will be held by the Village Board.

has resided in the ward or municipality where they wish to vote for at least 28 consecutive days before the election.
The elector must also be registered to vote to receive an absentee ballot. Proof of identification must be provided before an absentee ballot may be issued*.

Your written request must include:
your voting address within the municipality where you wish to vote
the address where the absentee ballot should be sent, if different from the address above
a copy of your photo identification*
The deadline for making application to receive an absentee ballot by mail is:

Absentee Notices Notes:
Absentee voting dates and times are determined by the Clerk. They cannot start more than 10 days before an election and must end by no later than the Sunday preceding election (see WEC Calendar of Election events). Something to keep in mind when setting the last date and time to vote in clerk’s office is that the Clerk is required to be “available” until 5:00 pm on the Friday preceding the election for voter registration; even if it’s a holiday (Good Friday).
Gets published per statutes 4th Tuesday before election. For Ozaukee Press – the Thursday, before the 4th Tuesday.
Create the Notice in 18-point font and post outside Village Hall.
Post on website also.
For future notices check the WEC website for most current version of the notice. County will also provide a form version of any updates.
