The Village of Union Grove is updating its Land Use Plan! The Land Use Plan serves as a guide for future development and redevelopment activities in the community. The existing plan was adopted in 2009 and was then incorporated into the Racine County Multi-Jurisdictional Comprehensive Plan 2035. According to State statutes, the plan is to be updated every 10 years. Village Planner Craig Huebner is working with Village staff, Village Board, Plan Commission and community members to update Union Grove’s Land Use Plan in 2020.

Updating the Land Use Plan is a public process that requires input from Village residents, property owners, business owners and other community members. We encourage you to get involved in this process by following this webpage and Village newsletters for updates, and attending upcoming meetings where this project will be discussed.

Public Workshop – January 29, 2020

To kickoff the project, a public workshop was held on Wednesday, January 29, 2020. The workshop was announced in the December 2019 edition of the Village Voice newsletter, as well as the December and January editions of the Union Grove Monthly E-News. Invitation postcards were mailed in early January to all addresses in the Village and a follow-up announcement was posted on the Union Grove Facebook page.

About 50 people were in attendance for the workshop, which involved a short presentation, group survey and three “stations” covering the topics of current conditions, impacts of development and future opportunities. Participants were asked to provide input on these topics on different display boards. Information covering a variety of topics was provided, including demographics, utilities, school capacity, recent developments, TIF districts, parks/trails, property taxes and more.
