Bill Description

Poorly planned development can result in significant run-off pollution, loss of recreational areas, and impaired wildlife habitat. Once an area is developed, it is impossible to undo the unintended consequences of poor planning. AB 109 is a follow-up bill to last session’s Act 178, which undermined Dane County’s well-planned communities by allowing town governments to opt out of county zoning. This legislation, which only applies to Dane County, is another example of the state legislature arbitrarily undermining the ability to create well-designed communities.

Current Status

AB 109 was introduced and referred to the Assembly Committee on Local Government. It had a public hearing on March 8, 2017 and was voted out of committee on March 29, 2017. The full Assembly voted to pass it on April 6, 2017. It has not yet been assigned a committee in the Senate.
