Plan Commission

The Plan Commission is responsible for investigating and making recommendations to the Town Board pertaining to zoning, land use, and regulations within the Township that comply with Town ordinances.

Meetings are the first Wednesdays of each month at LaFayette Town Hall.  Meeting agendas, minutes, and packets can be accessed here.

Members consist of six Town citizens and the Town Board Chair; all are voting members. Each member serves a three-year term beginning on May 1st.


Wisconsin State Statutes, Section 66.1001 sets the rules for communities regulating land use to adopt a comprehensive plan and update it every 10 years.  Working with the local jurisdictions, the 2035 Comprehensive Plan was adopted by Walworth County in 2019.  Given that there had not been significant changes to the character of the community, population growth and economic opportunities, the decision was made not to modify goals and objectives in the 2035 plan.  The plan update reviewed and documented new county and regional plans that have been adopted that may impact the County's land use plan map to reflect updated information.  The update also updated the plan implementation element of the 2035 Plan.
