Responsibilities & Services

The commission wrote a Comprehensive Plan for the City of Monona, which the City Council adopted in April of 2004. The Comprehensive Plan includes elements on housing, transportation, utilities and community facilities, natural and cultural resources, economic development, intergovernmental cooperation, land use, and plan implementation. An updated Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2016, replacing the 2004 Plan in its entirety. 

The commission also reviews applications for zoning permits for all districts except the single-family residence district and the two-family residence district. The commission shall grant or deny such applications, and shall direct the zoning administrator to issue or refuse to issue zoning permits under the city's Zoning Code.
