Welcome to the Town of Dunn

Comprehensive Plan Amendment

A public hearing will be conducted by the Town Plan Commission on June 12th and the Town Board on June 19, 2017, both beginning at 7 pm at the Town Hall to consider a proposed amendment to the Town of Dunn Comprehensive Plan.  The amendment addresses when a Planned Unit Development may be used in the Town and makes a number of small corrections.  Interested parties may contact Erica Schmitz, Planning Director, at 608-838-1081 ext. 205 or eschmitz@town.dunn.wi.us for additional information regarding these potential amendments.

Town of Dunn Parks & Open Space Plan Amendment

The Town Parks Commission has recommended amending the Parks & Open Space Plan to state: "Purchase adjacent land to Dunn Heritage Park in order to expand walking trails and to preserve and restore the natural environment. A shelter could also be considered if additional land is purchased" under Section VI: Recommendation for Outdoor Recreation Provision and as a Recommended Improvement in Appendix C.

The reason for this amendment is to help the Town apply for grants that could help pay for the acquisition of this land.  Any acquisition of land would still require approval by the Town electors at an Annual or Special Town meeting.  In addition, the Town would not be obligated to purchase this land or to build a shelter by incorporating this language into the Parks Plan.

The Parks Commission decided that acquiring land adjacent to Dunn Heritage Park is consistent with the Parks and Open Space Plan for the following reasons:

  1. Residents had expressed a desire for more walking trails in the 2014 Parks survey and existing trails in Dunn Heritage Park could be extended to the property.
  2. According to the survey, Dunn Heritage Park is the most popular Town park
  3. Native plants and trees could be reintroduced to the area
  4. This land is adjacent to existing parkland

The Town Board will now decide whether to approve this amendment.  If you have any comments or concerns about amending the Parks Plan, please contact Ben at 608-838-1081 ext. 206 by Thursday, June 14th.
