Power and Duties of the Plan Commission
The Plan Commission has a number of powers and duties ascribed to them by Wis. Stats 62.23 and 66.101. These powers and duties include promoting comprehensive planning, preparing and recommending to the governing body a comprehensive plan and ordinances and programs to implement the plan, reviewing and referring proposals for recommendation to the governing body, and holding hearings and making administrative determinations and recommendation, as necessary and appropriate.
