The City of La Crosse has begun the process of updating Confluence, the City of La Crosse’s Comprehensive Plan via Forward La Crosse, a campaign to encourage public involvement in the planning process.
Disclaimer: These draft chapters of the La Crosse Comprehensive Plan are being shared for public review and feedback following an extensive phase 1 community engagement process. The following content is still in draft form and is subject to revisions and changes as the Comprehensive Plan is finalized. Following the public comment period, the chapters will be re-formatted into a stylized report format.
- Community Facilities & Utilities
- Heritage Preservation and Cultural Stewardship
- Economic Development
- Intergovernmental Cooperation
- Land Use
- Natural Resources
Each topic area survey is expected to take about 2-5 minutes to complete, and there are 8 topic areas. All questions are optional, and participants can submit the survey at any time and can provide feedback on as many drafts as they prefer. The survey closes on May 31, 2023.
“We always need to think about people first…how our efforts really focus on the needs of the people in the city”
“I would love to see the day when nobody has a sense of not feeling welcome…by being in La Crosse”
“Accountability in where we want to go versus where we are…make sure we are headed due north”
Ways to Participate
The campaign will address issues and opportunities, housing, transportation, economic development, intergovernmental cooperation, land use, utilities, community facilities, agricultural, natural and cultural resources, and plan implementation.
