Land Use Planning Commission

The Town of Stiles Planning Commission wants to make the process of rezoning your property, acquiring a conditional use permit or a land division variance as simple as possible. The Land Use Planning Commission is composed of residents of the Town that are committed to working with other residents, the Town Board and Oconto County to provide for a coordinated mix of land uses and land use arrangements that minimize land use conflicts, provides for a variety of land use types and provides for the enhancement of the equality of life for the citizens of the Town of Stiles.

In 1998, the Stiles residents completed surveys about how they wanted the community to look in the future, and how development should occur.
These surveys indicated the need to provide for sound community development and growth, while still maintaining significant open spaces, natural resources, and the rural nature of the Town.

The survey also served as the basis for the Town of Stiles Comprehensive Plan. This Plan provides guidelines to help manage the Town of Stiles growth through the year 2030. Residents may review a copy of the plan at the Stiles Town Hall or at Community Memorial Library in Oconto Falls, or the Lena Library in Lena.
