Extraterritorial Zoning

The Village and Town of New Glarus have developed a collaborative approach for land development and preservation beyond the Village’s edges in the Town. The goals of this effort are to provide clearer and more consistent plans and regulations, to preserve the look and feel of the New Glarus area while accommodating reasonable development, and to provide future growth opportunities in mutually agreed areas. It is the hope that the two municipalities and their residents will benefit from an improved, collaborative approach to land use.
