Planning Division

The Wood County Planning Office is a division of the Planning and Zoning Department. The Planning Division leads the County by managing current and future development of its communities. One of the main functions of the Planning Division is to coordinate and assist with land use planning and community development services for Wood County and municipalities within its jurisdiction. Much of the planning that is done is to meet statutory requirements of the state, or to meet eligibility requirements of grant funding opportunities. Perhaps more importantly, planning provides direction to guide short and long term community decisions. Planning activities that take place in the office range from facilitating the planning process for local towns, villages and cities, to administering and maintaining the County Comprehensive Plan.
