Smart Growth Planning

The Town of Clyman has formed a Smart Growth Planning Committee as of May 2009. The State of Wisconsin has mandated that all of the state's towns and villages develop a "Smart Growth Plan" by 2010. The Town of Clyman has contracted Jeff Retzlaff to consult with our committee in our efforts to develop our Smart growth plan. Jeff was heavily involved in the research and creation of our Town of Clyman zoning ordinances. He is certified by the American Institute of Certified Planners and heavily involved with planning for numerous Wisconsin communities including Menomonee Falls, Germantown, Mayville, Richfield, Hubertus and others. Jeff is a member of the Wisconsin chapter of the American Planning Association. Check this website for the dates of future meetings.

A questionnaire was sent to the residents of the Town of Clyman mid-July of 2009 with an approximate 50% return.
