Simply put, our goal is to utilize the land for which it is best suited.
New Richmond is unique in the fact that it is rural, has small town charm, enjoys a river view and is walkable, yet still close in proximity to many urban centers.
To that end, future land use is important and that is where zoning in New Richmond comes into play.
We work hard developing future land-use plans that factor in economic and social aspects, as well as the physical characteristics of the land. Zoning provides for more orderly development where regulations pertaining to lot size, set back lines, building height, and population density can make areas more attractive.
