Whether you see the need for more protected landscapes, mixed-income housing or more roads in the area, you'll have an opportunity to offer input as to how Walworth County and southeastern Wisconsin should be developed over the next few decades at a VISION 2050 meeting 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 9, at the Matheson Memorial Library, 101 N. Wisconsin St., Elkhorn.

The Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission is holding a series of meetings for VISION 2050, encouraging public input on land use and transportation issues in the future.

Public input will help shape the long-range vision for land use and transportation for the seven counties in southeastern Wisconsin—looking all the way out to the year 2050.

Southeastern Wisconsin is not the first region to use visioning and scenario planning to enhance regional planning efforts. Commission staff has looked at many locations across the nation where regional planners have completed or are currently undertaking visioning or scenario planning efforts.

SEWRPC officials say the public outreach is designed to get greater input into the process, helping residents to understand the often difficult land use and transportation choices the region faces, and to let residents have their voices heard as choices are made over the next several decades.
