Environmental Corridors

The Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission is in the beginning stages of updating its regional environmental corridor dataset. Currently, GIS datasets created nearly 10 years ago are being utilized for community resources and planning documents.

The current regional environmental corridor dataset consists of the following:

  • 100-Year Floodplain
  • Steep Slopes (12% or Greater)
  • Wetlands Greater than 2 acres (with a 50 foot setback)
  • Surface Water (with a 75 foot setback)

This regional environmental corridor dataset update is funded in part by the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Office for Coastal Management under the Coastal Zone Management Act, Grant #NA21NOS4190086.
