Planning & Zoning

The Plan Commission advises the Village Board on comprehensive planning and land use issues and may make related decisions that are delegated to them by the Village Board.  A primary role of the Commission is to prepare and assist the Village Board in implementation of the Sauk Prairie Comprehensive Plan.  This section contains site development review information and public improvement guidelines.  The Planning Commission meets the 1st Monday of the month at 6:30 PM at the Prairie du Sac Village Hall.

The Joint Extraterritorial Committee, Village Board of Zoning Appeals and Board of Extraterritorial Zoning Appeals also deal with specific land use issues pertaining to their jurisdiction.
