Dane County Seeks Public Input for Land and Water Resource Management Plan

MADISON, WI – October 22, 2018 – Dane County is updating its Land and Water Resource Management Plan and is seeking public input.  A land and water resource management plan is a long-term strategic plan that includes an assessment of the natural resource conditions and needs of a county. The process includes input from local citizens as well as resource professionals and directs conservation efforts.  While the plan is a 10-year document, it is used in the development of annual work plans and to help apply for conservation grant funding.  The process and plan is a holistic approach to land and water resource management that focuses on partnerships and collaboration. 

The draft plan is available for comment on the Dane County Land & Water Resources Department website at https://lcd-lwrd.countyofdane.com/Resources/LWRM-Plan. Comments can be submitted online and will be accepted through November 21, 2018.  In addition, the Dane County Land Conservation Committee will be hosting a public hearing on November 15, 2018 at 5:00 pm at the Lyman F Anderson Agriculture and Conservation Center, 5201 Fen Oak Drive, room 121 in Madison, Wisconsin.
