City of Onalaska looking ahead with public input

ONALASKA, Wis. (WXOW) - What the City of Onalaska looks like in the future is up to the public.

City officials say they want to continue to grow but they want to know what the community is looking for.

Thursday, the city held the second of two public meetings they are calling visioning meetings.   The purpose is to discuss the positives and negatives of the growth of the city and community members are encouraged to share new ideas.

"We will go through all of the goals and objectives one by one," said Katie Meyer Onalaska Planning and Zoning Inspector.  "So essentially these meetings are a check point to make sure we are moving in the right direction but we also want to keep the pulse of the community alive in the plan."

Topics discuss at the meetings; new places for businesses, new residential areas, traffic and bluffland protection. 

Following the meetings, the city will update their comprehensive plan so it continues to provide clear direction to the city and remains consistent with community goals, values and needs.
