Planning Commission

The Planning Commission is established by ordinance and plays several roles in our town’s planning and zoning:

  • Administer, revise and update our current Zoning Ordinance
  • Administer and update our Land Use Plan

The Town of Manitowish Waters adopted the Year 2022 Comprehensive Land Use Plan in April of 2003. The Planning Commission works continuously to revise and update our Town Zoning Ordinance so that it reflects and implements the recommendations of the Land Use Plan.  In August 2017 we completed an extensive update of the Plan, now referred to as the Town of Manitowish Waters Comprehensive Plan.

Notice: We welcome your input and comments as to any facet of the Zoning Ordinance or Land Use Plan. We further welcome you to attend Plan Commission Workshops and regular or special meetings. The Plan Commission generally meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm (6:00 pm November thru March) at the Community Center or Airport Terminal Building.
