Placeholder Image
MONROE - The city of Monroe was selected as a bronze standard of comprehensive planning for the recently adopted municipal outline that took nearly two years to complete. Assistant City Administrator Martin Shanks was notified by the American Planning Association that the Monroe Comprehensive Plan was recognized with a bronze level designation, meaning it scored 70 percent out of the grading criteria within the organization. "Everyone involved in making this project happen, including our elected officials, Plan Commission members, city staff, (Southwest Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission), (Green County Development Corporation), UW-Extension and the community at-large should be very proud of this achievement and recognition," Shanks wrote in an email announcing the news last week.
