The City began a process to update its comprehensive plan in February 2018. The City’s Comprehensive Plan is intended to represent a vision of Sun Prairie’s future. The plan itself is not a regulation, but serves as a long-term guide for the community, helping City leaders with decision making and setting policies. The last time the City undertook a complete re-write of its plan was in 2009. A lot has happened since that time!

The content of the plan will encompass many topics including, but not limited to: housing, transportation, land use, community facilities, the preservation and management of natural resources, and economic development.

A steering committee has been created to spearhead this approximately 18-month effort. There will be many opportunities for citizens to participate throughout the process. Check back often for updates and ways you can stay involved. We’re excited you’re here and interested in the future of Sun Prairie!
