Trenton Comprehensive Plan, March 10, 2009



Notice is hereby given that a public hearing will be held on the 10th day of March, 2009, at 7:25 p.m., at the Trenton Town Hall, located at W7926 250th Ave, for the purpose to consider adopting a Comprehensive land use plan ordinance. All persons interested are invited to said hearing and to be heard.

This public hearing will be conducted offering the citizens of Trenton an opportunity to review and comment on a new Town of Trenton County Comprehensive Plan.

The future course of development for Town of Trenton is contained in the Comprehensive Plan. This long-range guide brings together many elements of the Town--coordinating them to maintain an environment that is attractive, efficient, and pleasing to their citizens. Each element sets a desired development direction consistent with the goals and policies that have been established to maintain and enhance the quality of the community desired by citizens and officials.

The Comprehensive Plan is general in nature, allowing for flexibility. It is comprehensive because it considers many elements and their inherent relationship with each other. The plan is properly balanced and blended, giving emphasis to those characteristics desired.

The plan has evolved through a careful deliberate process of data collection, analysis of potential alternatives and goal formation--each stage being a step toward refining the comprehensive plan. During the course of this process, each point of view has been carefully reviewed for incorporation into the final plan.

The plan will provide a service to the Town of Trenton if the guidelines promulgated by the plan are followed. The guidelines are important to Town officials as they evaluate the developmental elements during the course of administering the plan. Understanding by private interest groups, such as developers, will assure conformance with plan objectives.

The plan was prepared with the assistance of Rudd & Associates who may be contacted for additional information regarding the Comprehensive Plan.

Further, copies of the Comprehensive Plan are available for review at the Town Hall.

Elements of the plan include:

Issues and Opportunities



Utilities and Community Facilities

Agricultural, Natural, and Cultural Resources

Economic Development

Intergovernmental Cooperation

Land Use
