The Oneida County University of Wisconsin office and The Local Government Center are once again offering Wisline programs.
Upcoming programs are scheduled as follows:
Feb. 20 – Sand and nonmetallic mining updates. The growth of sand and nonmetallic mining, especially sand used in hydraulic fracturing mining, often called “frac sand,” continues in Wisconsin. Issues regarding regulation of these mines reached as far as the Supreme Court in 2012.
March 20 – Wetland law and permitting. Wetlands are vital parts of ecosystems and provide additional significant economic and social benefits. Learn about recent changes to wetland policies and regulations in the state and how they may impact the local government.
April 10 – Legislation and case law updates. This popular Wisline program returns with the latest Wisconsin court decisions. Legislation and other developments related to land use planning and implementation are highlighted and reviewed.
May 15 – Hearing zoning appeals and variances. Wisconsin law requires all zoning codes to provide a board of appeals, or in counties and some towns, a board of adjustment to hear appeals and variances. This program provides essential information about the University of Wisconsin, United States Department of Agriculture and Wisconsin Counties Cooperating. UW-Extension provides equal opportunities in employment and programming, including Title IX and ADA decisions made by these zoning boards and the procedures and legal standards they must use.
All programs begin at 10:30 a.m. For registration costs and information, visit lgc.uwex.edu or contact Anna Gauthier at the UW-Extension office, (715) 365-2750.
