Nearly two years ago, the Town Board of the Town of Crescent (Town) acted upon Ordinance #03-2021, assembling a 7-member Town Plan Commission. This group of Town resident volunteers represent the “Town Planning Agency” as referenced in State of Wisconsin Statues under secs. 236.02(13) and 236.45. You can learn more about this Town Ordinance at: www.townofcrescent.com.

The Plan Commission’s purpose was to research and propose ideas in the areas of health, safety, welfare, and wise use of resources for the benefit of current and future residents of the Town (and affected neighboring jurisdictions), through the adoption and implementation of a Comprehensive Land Use Plan (The Plan).

The Plan Commission is nearing the final stages of developing The Plan as defined by the state of Wisconsin. There WILL be a public/resident hearing to discuss and review The Plan BEFORE it is presented to the Town Board for adoption. We WANT AND NEED your input by August 14, 2023.

Our Plan Commission worked closely with professional consultants at North Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (www.ncwrpc.org) in preparing this survey. Responses will be completely anonymous unless you choose to provide your name. Your valuable feedback can impact the Town’s future. You will have an opportunity for input during public/resident hearings, and another opportunity during a future Town Board meeting when The Plan (final draft) will be presented and voted upon for final approval.

- Seven Town of Crescent residents comprise the Town Plan Commission.
- This commission has completed the first draft of the Town’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan.
- Your completed survey is your first opportunity to have your opinion matters.
- There will be a public hearing(s) for review and comment (scheduling to be determined). One week in advance of the hearing, The Plan will be posted to the Town website at www.townofcrescent.com/ThePlan
- Final draft of the Plan to be presented to the Town Board for approval and adoption upon the gathering of all resident feedback and in further compliance of the Wisconsin Statute applicable to The Plan.

This online survey will take about 15-20 minutes to complete.

A printed survey is available at the Crescent Town Hall in a plastic bin outside the front entrance. Once completed, it should be mailed to Town Treasurer, Carla Fletcher at 6661 Round Lake Rd, Rhinelander, WI 54501.

Thank you in advance for helping to make the Town of Crescent better every day!
