La Crosse County, Wisconsin
ZONING, COMPREHENSIVE PLANNING & LAND USE
Oftentimes, zoning, comprehensive planning and land use are intermingled and treated as one. However, they are each distinct categories used for different purposes.
Zoning: a “police power” regulation.
Comprehensive Planning: a vision for future land use.
Land Use: actual use of the land determined for taxing purposes.
