Ozaukee County Coastal Resources Ecological Prioritization Master Plan
Master Plan
The Ozaukee County Planning and Parks Department, in conjunction with its partners including the Ozaukee Treasures Network, recently completed a Coastal Resources Ecological Prioritization Master Plan, which is a parcel-level prioritization planning effort for preservation and restoration of critical coastal land and water resources in Ozaukee County.  The Department created a Geographic Information System (GIS) Decision Support Tool while developing the Master Plan to provide a GIS-based, systematic prioritization of parcels according to a suite of land use, environmental, and ecological analysis factors.  An accompanying technical report serves as a supplemental document to the Master Plan and is intended to provide additional information about the planning process, a more detailed explanation of the data and methods utilized, and a discussion of the limitations and considerations of both the inputs and outputs of the analysis.  Questions may be directed to Karina Ward, Planning and GIS Specialist, or 262-238-8277.
