What We Do

1000 Friends of Wisconsin is a statewide organization founded in 1996 to combat uncontrolled sprawl. We were instrumental in passing the Smart Growth Comprehensive Planning Law and have continued to work with local communities to implement sustainable policies at the local level.

Our work focuses on helping people make the connection between our land use and transportation decisions and our state’s economic and environmental health.
