Comprehensive planning is a process that determines community goals and aspirations in terms of community development. It acts as the foundation for all land use decisions, defines the community’s vision, provides guidelines for development, and establishes goals and objectives for the next several years.
In September 2001, the Town of Gibraltar started work on a comprehensive plan, in accordance with Wisconsin’s Smart Growth law, that would help guide Town planning for the next 20 years. The plan was the first comprehensive plan for the Town of Gibraltar and prepared to meet the requirements of Wisconsin’s “Smart Growth” law (1999 Wisconsin Act 9) and adopted under the authority granted by Section 66.1001 of the Wisconsin Statures. The comprehensive plan provides a specific guide as to where future conservation, growth and development should occur within the community.
Until the next update in 2024, this current plan should be consulted when the Town makes decisions concerning land use and other issues impacting the development of the Town.

This plan should be updated every ten years to reflect the needs of the community and progress that has been made toward implementing the plan’s goals.
