About Us

Our goal is to preserve our natural resources by building healthy communities across Wisconsin.

We were founded in 1996 to be the citizens’ voice for sound land use planning. We were instrumental in passing the Smart Growth Comprehensive Planning Law and have continued to work with communities to implement sustainable policies at the local level.
