Comprehensive Plan

The City of Marshfield adopted the 2017 Comprehensive Plan update on July 11, 2017. The Comprehensive Plan provides a current report of the community’s vision for the future of Marshfield. The preparation of the Plan relied heavily on the participation of the citizens of Marshfield. This vision identifies values and sets goals, objectives and policies for future development of the City over the next 20-year period.

The Comprehensive Plan allows the City to comply with Wisconsin's Comprehensive Planning Legislation. This Plan addresses the nine required elements and provides a 'proactive' plan for the community to: identify housing needs, identify transportation choices, promote economic development, promote intergovernmental cooperation, guide future land use decisions, identify and protect natural resources, identify capacity and future needs for utilities and community facilities, and identify specific implementation strategies.
