Comprehensive Plan Update

Community Development

Comprehensive Plan

The City of Menasha is updating the Land Use and Transportation chapters of its 2008 Comprehensive Plan.  The purpose of this update is to determine long-term community goals and aspirations over the next 10+ years, establishing City policies and actions related to land use and transportation.  This 2021 planning process will assess the City's progress relative to the 2008 Plan, re-evaluate issues, revisit goals, and clarify the City's path forward.

The City is hosting two visioning sessions and an online community survey.  The City encourages residents and others interested in Menasha’s future to attend one of the visioning sessions, as well as take the community survey.  Public feedback will help shape community goals, policies, and actions within the Plan.

There will be two visioning sessions – one held virtually via Zoom and one in-person held at Menasha Public Library: Company Room E
