Sauk Prairie Comprehensive Plan

A comprehensive plan is a local government's guide to community physical, social, and economic development.  Comprehensive plans are not meant to serve as land use regulations in themselves; instead, they provide a rational basis for local land use decisions with a vision for future planning and community decisions.  The current Sauk Prairie Comprehensive Plan was adopted on April 11, 2017, by the Villages of Sauk City and Prairie du Sac, Town of Prairie du Sac.  This includes the Highway 12/PF/Airport Area Plan and the Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan.

Intergovernmental Cooperation Agreement

The Village Boards of the Villages of Prairie du Sac and Sauk City and the Town Board for the Town of Prairie du Sac entered into an “Intergovernmental Cooperation Agreement”, which establishes boundary lines and land use matters affecting these municipalities.  The Agreement implements various provisions of the Comprehensive Plan adopted by the foregoing municipalities.  The Agreement establishes a common boundary line between the Villages, as well as establishes areas which can and cannot be annexed from the Town to the respective Village.
