COMPREHENSIVE PLAN 2040 UPDATE
The Town of Eldorado is in the process of updating the Comprehensive Plan Eldorado 2030 –that was adopted in December of 2009. To assist the Town in updating its current plan, the Town has enlisted the assistance of East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission.
The comprehensive plan provides a guide to where growth and development should occur over the next 20 years. When the Town makes future decisions concerning land use development, the plan will be consulted. This plan provides an inventory and analyzes the Town’s physical settings, natural features, land use, demographics, economics, housing stock, transportation and community facilities.
Residents are encouraged to provide input into the development of the comprehensive plan. More information regarding the development of the Town’s comprehensive plan update is available at: https://www.ecwrpc.org/programs/comprehensive-planning/town-of-eldorado/.

Please be advised of the following requirements to appear before the Board of Review and procedural requirements if appearing before the Board:
No person shall be allowed to appear before the Board of Review, to testify to the Board by telephone or to contest the amount of any assessment of real or personal property if the person has refused a reasonable written request by certified mail of the Assessor to view such property.
After the first meeting of the Board of Review and before the Board’s final adjournment, no person who is scheduled to appear before the Board of Review may contact or provide information to a member of the Board about the person’s objection except at a session of the Board.
No person may appear before the Board of Review, testify to the Board by telephone or contest the amount of the assessment unless, at least 48 hours before the first meeting of the Board or at least 48 hours before the objection is heard if the objection is allowed because the person has been granted a waiver of the 48-hour notice of an intent to file a written objection by appearing before the Board during the first two hours of the meeting and showing good cause for failure to meet the 48-hour notice requirement and files a written objection, that the person provides to the clerk of the Board of Review notice as to whether the person will ask for removal of any Board members and, if so, which member will be removed and the person’s reasonable estimate of the length of time that the hearing will take.
When appearing before the Board of Review, the person shall specify, in writing, the person’s estimate of the value of the land and of the improvements that are the subject of the person’s objection and specify the information that the person used to arrive at that estimate.
No person may appear before the Board of Review, testify to the Board or by telephone or object to a valuation; if that valuation was made by the Assessor or the Objector using the income method of valuation; unless the person supplies the Assessor all the information about income and expenses, as specified in the Assessor’s manual under Sec. 73.03 (2a) of Wis Statutes, that the Assessor requests. The Town of Eldorado has an ordinance for the confidentiality of information about income and expenses that is provided to the Assessor under this paragraph which provided exceptions for persons using information in the discharge of duties imposed by law or the duties of their office or by order of a court. The information that is provided under this paragraph, unless a court determined that it is inaccurate, is not subject to the right of inspection and copying under Sec. 19.35 (1) of Wis Statutes.
The Board shall hear upon oath, by telephone, all ill or disabled persons who present to the Board a letter from a physician, surgeon or osteopath that confirms their illness or disability. No other persons may testify by telephone.
