Zoning Open House Set

Onalaska, WI (WXOW) --- The City of Onalaska wants to hear what its residents think about future planning.

The City is hosting a community open house to discuss a proposed draft of its Unified Development Code and Zoning Ordinance. The forum will focus on future planning, development and growth.

People can offer their opinions on regulations on housing, landscaping and parking, "The City's Zoning Code is fairly outdated" says City Attorney Amanda Jackson. "Some of the regulations in there are decades old. So we're taking a holistic approach to looking at the code."

The zoning draft is available on the City's website: CityofOnalaska.Com
Following the open house, the City Plan Commission will recommend a final version for approval in February.

The open house runs from 6:30-7:30 pm on Wednesday, December 18 at the Onalaska Omni Center.
