EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The purpose of this section is to review and analyze land use in the Town of Arena.  The land use element is the compilation of all other elements of this plan.  Designating land uses and standards for development requires the Town to be able to adequately provide utilities, maintain roads, and support other services.  Therefore, the policies and programs of the land use element must be supported by all other elements of the plan.  This section will consider both current and future land use in the Town of Arena.  At the present time, the dominant developed land use in the Town is agricultural. 

 

The Town of Arena long-range land use planning goals are

 

·         Preserve the family farm and farmland in the Town of Arena

·         Guide the future growth of the Town in a planned fashion

·         Plan for the provision of necessary public services

·         Protect the natural environment

·         Preserve the rural atmosphere in the Town of  Arena

 

To achieve these goals, the following policies have been developed to guide the Town Board and the Town Plan Commission in making future land use decisions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wisconsin State Statute 66.1001(2)(h)

 

(h) Land-use element. 

A compilation of objectives, policies, goals, maps and programs to guide the future development and redevelopment of public and private property.  The element shall contain a listing of the amount, type, intensity and net density of existing uses of land in the local governmental unit, such as agricultural, residential, commercial, industrial and other public and private uses.  The element shall analyze trends in the supply, demand and price of land, opportunities for redevelopment and existing and potential land-use conflicts.  The element shall contain projections, based on the background information specified in par. (a), for 20 years, in 5-year increments, of future residential, agricultural, commercial and industrial land uses including the assumptions of net densities or other spatial assumptions upon which the projections are based.  The element shall also include a series of maps that shows current land uses and future land uses that indicate productive agricultural soils, natural limitations for building site development, floodplains, wetlands and other environmentally sensitive lands, the boundaries of areas to which services of public utilities and community facilities, as those terms are used in par. (d), will be provided in the future, consistent with the timetable described in par. (d), and the general location of future land uses by net density or other classifications.

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


LAND USE POLICIES

 

 

I.  FARM PRESERVATION

 

1.  Enforce a development density of one home per 30 acres in the Town of Arena.

 

In order to establish a residential density that is appropriate to the land and the rural character of community services, and to limit the impact of land speculation upon farmlands in the Town, the policy shall be to have dwelling units at a density of not more than one (1) dwelling unit per thirty (30) acres.

 

This density standard shall be determined on the basis of contiguous ownership parcels of record as listed in the Town of Arena property tax rolls as of January 1, 2005.  Existing farm related dwellings are counted against the density standard.

 

All vacant parcels, 40 acres or less, existing prior to adoption of the Town of Arena 40-Acre Ordinance (November, 1983) will be grandfathered to allow one dwelling unit, subject to an agreement by the property owner that the entire parcel be deed restricted by covenant to have no more than one dwelling unit per 40 acres as a condition of approval of a rezoning or a building permit issued by the Town.

 

2.  Require a minimum lot size of 5 acres for residential development.

 

The minimum parcel size for dwellings in conformance with one unit per 30-acre policy is five (5) acres.  Residential building sites shall not contain more than one (1) acre of farmland as defined herein.

 

3.       Limit non-farm development on productive farmlands (lands having a history of farming activity including cropland and pasture land).

 

An exception to this policy will be granted where farmland parcels are too small to be economically used for agricultural purposes or which are inaccessible to modern farm machinery needed to produce and harvest agricultural products.

 

One exception to this policy will be granted to allow an owner of a farm prior to January 1, 1985, to build on a maximum 5 acre parcel of productive farmland, contingent upon that parcel being bordered on two sides by a roadway or property line, and the owner has an  available building site based on the residential density standards.

 

4.       Restrict the location of new private driveways or roads through the Town of Arena Driveway Ordinance.

 

New private driveways or roads shall not be permitted to cross or dissect productive farmlands unless located along existing line fences as of January 1, 2005, or natural features such as a stream.

 

5.  Refrain from expanding public utilities through areas of productive farmland.

 

Any new development requiring public utility extensions (electric power lines, telephone lines, gas distribution lines) to cross productive farmlands in a manner that will disrupt farming activities will not be permitted.

 

6.  Require non-farm development to locate at least 400 feet from an operating farm.

 

To avoid possible farm nuisance complaints, development meeting the above criteria will not be permitted to locate within 400 feet of an operating farm unit or agricultural facility.  If in the opinion of the Town a greater distance is required to avoid possible conflicts from existing or proposed agricultural operations, a greater setback distance may be required.

 

 

 

 

7.  Encourage farmland erosion control practices.

 

The Town will encourage farmland erosion control practices.  The Town will work with the Iowa County Soil Conservation Service Office and will encourage landowners to follow approved farm conservation plans aimed at reducing soil erosion rates.

 

8.  Monitor large-scale farm operations.

 

The Town will monitor intensive, confinement, and /or large-scale farming operations to avoid possible land use conflicts and environmental nuisances.  Any farm operation (farm unit) exceeding 300 animal units as defined below will be subject to review and approval in compliance with the performance standards of the Town of Arena Comprehensive Plan.

 

II.  RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT

 

1.       Allow a maximum of six homes to cluster in any given area.

 

2.       No more than six dwelling units will be allowed to cluster with abutting parcel boundaries or on a shared driveway.

 

3.       Require conformance to the Town of Arena Development Standards.

 

See the required criteria included in Section I of the Town of Arena Comprehensive Plan.

 

4.       Restrict the dedication and maintenance of future roadways in the Town of Arena.

 

The Town of Arena will not accept the dedication or maintenance responsibility of any additional roads servicing residential development.

 

5.       Require all new mobile homes to be located in a mobile home park.

 

All future mobile homes in the Town of Arena will be required to be located in mobile home parks as defined in Wisconsin Statutes and shall be connected to the Village of Arena sanitary sewer collection and treatment system.  (Existing mobile homes may be replaced on the same site within six (6) months from the date of mobile home removal, provided that a mobile home on that site has been humanly occupied since January 1, 1985.)

 

6.       Non-residential development structures are allowed development that will be permitted, but may not exceed 600 square feet.

 

Accessory building, storage buildings or similar buildings, not intended for year round occupancy and not related to a farm or permitted dwelling may be allowed on a case-by-case conditional approval basis.  In no such case shall the structure exceed 600 sq. ft. or have internal plumbing.  Recreation cabins will be limited to one (1) per thirty (30) acres – the same provisions as a residential dwelling unit.

 

 

III.  COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT

 

1.       Encourage commercial development to cluster along the Highway 14 corridor near existing commercial development.

 

Commercial development along Highway 14 will be permitted in conformance with all of the other policies established for development.  In addition, the Town will encourage new commercial development to “cluster” or located in or adjacent to existing, commercially zoned areas.

 

2.       Require all new commercial development to have frontage on either a county or state highway. 

 

This is required so that high volumes of traffic are not shifted onto Town roads and in turn, require additional upkeep and maintenance.  Small family businesses would be exceptions.

           

3.       Encourage large-scale industry or business development to connect to public water and wastewater utilities. 

 

4.       Agricultural businesses providing farm services and/or supplies will be permitted to locate within the farming areas of the Township.  Agricultural business development will be reviewed by the Town as a conditional use that may receive variance from the other policies and performance standards of the Town of Arena Comprehensive Plan.

 

5.       Recreation and institutional development proposed in the Town of Arena will be required to meet all of the policies and standards of the Town of Arena Comprehensive Plan.  As a part of reviewing such development proposals, developers will be required to submit impact statements assessing in detail the proposed projects impact on farms and farmland, natural resources, Town roads, fire and emergency medical services, Town taxes, and community setting.  The results of such an impact assessment must prove positive benefits to the community before such development will be permitted.

 

6.       Small family business may be permitted in any part of the Town, provided that the business is conducted primarily by members of the immediate family.  Signage shall be determined by conditional use restrictions.

 

 

 

IV.  PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENTS

 

The Town of Arena may consider more complex developments, such as planned unit developments in the future.  The purpose of planned complex developments are to encourage the development of planned agricultural, commercial and/or residential neighborhoods and communities that provide a full range of residence types as well as certain agricultural, commercial and office uses designed to serve the inhabitants.  It is recognized that only through ingenuity, imagination and high quality design can residential and other developments be produced which are in keeping with the intent of this Comprehensive Plan while departing from the strict application of conventional use and dimensional requirements found within a typical subdivision.  Platted subdivisions conforming to the Iowa County Subdivision and Land Division Ordinance may be permitted within a Planned Unit Development. 

 

At a minimum, the following information will need to be submitted to the Town of Arena Plan Commission in order to begin preliminary review of a Planned Unit Development (PUD).

 

a)       A minimum total parcel size of 640 contiguous acres under single, corporation, firm, partnership or association of ownership to be considered for a PUD.

 

b)       A minimum lot size of 2 acres for single family residential building sites within a PUD.

 

c)       A density standard of 1 residential building site per 30 acres in a PUD; all existing residential structures count against the density standard.

 

d)       A minimum of 50% of the PUD remains in open space.

 

e)       Evidence of adequate financial resources to complete the proposed project.

 

f)         Proposed land uses, the location of various dwelling types and dwelling unit densities, and the location of all other proposed buildings and construction.

 

g)       Proposed primary traffic circulation pattern, including proposed public and private streets and maintenance of those streets. 

 

h)       Proposed park, playgrounds and other common open space areas. 

 

i)         Proposed delineation of units or phases to be constructed in progression. 

 

j)         Proposed means of dedication of common open space areas and organizational arrangements for the ownership, maintenance, preservation of common open space, streets, and other common facilities, including a copy of the homeowners’ or property owners association bylaws, if such organization is to be used. 

 

k)       Relation of land uses in the surrounding area to the land use plan for the PUD. 

 

l)         Impact on all public services. 

 

m)     Proposal for handling drainage, water and sewage plans.

 

 

V.  ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

 

1.       The Town of Arena Comprehensive Plan is designed to protect the natural environment and special features of the ridge and valley land, characteristic of the Town of Arena.  Development in floodplains or steep slopes will be prohibited.  All development will be managed to protect the natural lay of the land, groundwater resources, floodplains, and the aesthetic qualities of this landscape.  The Town of Arena Comprehensive Plan is designed to encourage new development to blend into the natural setting to the greatest extent possible.  The Town will emphasize providing education and information related to proper development within the ridge and valley areas.

 

2.       The Town Plan Commission will closely monitor the state and federal activities related to the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway a state recreation area.  The Town of Arena will cooperate and encourage the wise use of this natural feature.  However, the Town will require all proposed public recreation development to conform to all of the policies and performance standards in the Town of Arena Comprehensive Plan, particularly those aimed at protecting the rural town atmosphere and farming vitality of the Township.

 

TOWN OF ARENA COMPREHENSIVE PLAN DEFINITIONS

 

The Town of Arena will use section 13 of the Iowa County Zoning Ordinance.

 

 

TOWN OF ARENA PERFORMANCE STANDARDS

 

The following performance standards have been developed to implement the Town of Arena’s Comprehensive Plan.  The implementation of these standards will be accomplished in the regulatory framework of

1.       The existing County Zoning Ordinance and Sanitation Ordinance

2.       A Town of Arena Land Division Ordinance

3.       A Town of Arena Building Ordinance

4.       A Driveway Ordinance

5.       Iowa County Subdivision and Land Division Ordinance

 

The combination of the regulatory devices enables the Town to enforce the following performance standards.

 

 

A.  Driveway Standards

 

No person, firm, or corporation shall establish or construct a private driveway or in-driveway, nor shall any person, firm, or corporation proceed with the grading of a driveway without first obtaining the written approval of the Town of Arena.  Approval of private driveways will be granted in compliance with the following standards.  The Town may vary from these standards on a case-by-case basis provided herein, in actions involving agricultural and commercial use. 

 

1.       Minimum width, curve radius, and maximum grade as follows:

a.       One (1) dwelling unit or parcel served requires a 12’ roadway width with a minimum 6’ x 25’ pull-off lane every 400’.  The maximum grade slope must not exceed 10 percent with a horizontal curve radius of 40’. 

b.       Two (2) to six (6) maximum dwellings on a shared driveway require a 16’ roadway width.  The maximum grade slope must not exceed 10 percent with a horizontal curve radius of 40’.

 

2.       Driveway Construction will not be permitted to bisect farmlands except within the one (1) acres of the building site.  In cases where there is no other option, driveway construction may be permitted within fifty (50) feet of line fences as of January 1, 2005 or other natural feature currently dividing farmlands.

 

3.       Driveways may be shared but shall be limited to provide access to no more than six (6) dwelling units or parcels.  Any driveway proposed for joint use shall be required to have recorded multi-party access easements and maintenance agreements reviewed and approved by the Town.

 

4.       All driveways will require the review and approval of the Town.  Additional improvements related to emergency vehicle turn-around and passing standards may be required.  The Town may require bonds or similar devices to insure that construction conforms to the standards as approved.

 

5.       The residential driveway bed must be covered with a minimum of 6” of gravel or crushed rock.  The gravel or rock must be of a road construction surface grade.  The driveway must be maintained in a condition that complies with the specifications.

 

6.       At the entrance to a Town road, each driveway shall have a culvert of no less that 18” diameter.  The gravel in-driveway section abutting the public road pavement shall have a minimum width of 20’ to a minimum perpendicular distance of 20’.  To prevent drainage and driveway erosion in to the public roadway, this in-drive section falling within the public right-of-way shall be required to slope away from the public road grade at a minimum of 1 percent and a maximum of 5 percent.  Requirements of this paragraph may be modified at the discretion of the Town Board and Plan Commission.

 

7.       Driveways taking access off state and county highways will be required to comply with all of the driveway standards contained herein except number 6 above.

 

8.       Construction of driveways shall not interfere with natural drainage patterns.  Natural drainage way crossings shall be rip-rapped or otherwise stabilized below drainage and culvert discharge points for a distance sufficient to carry the discharge water without channel erosion.

 

9.       Grading for driveway construction will be required to preserve or match the natural contours of the site.  Driveway alignment should follow the natural terrain.  Grading should attempt to retain existing trees and other natural vegetation to stabilize hillside cuts.  The top and toe of the slopes shall be rounded to avoid additional erosion.  Any cut and fill slopes greater than 3 to 1 will require the construction of a retaining wall, rip-rapping or similar soil stabilization technique.  Erosion control measures shall be required to be planted with permanent vegetation to reduce soil erosion.  The Town may require the preparation of construction and erosion control plans approved by a registered engineer of the Iowa County Soil Conservation Service Office.

Agricultural

Agriculture is the dominant developed land use in Arena, with 49.6 percent of the Town’s land area.  Agricultural land includes land that produces a crop (including Christmas trees or ginseng), agricultural forest (forested lands contiguous with agricultural land), supports livestock, or is eligible for enrollment in specific federal agricultural programs.

 

Residential

As indicated by Table H.1, residential land use accounts for 2.1 percent of the land area within the Town.   

 

Commercial

Commercial refers to any parcel that has a business on it, but does not include industrial properties.  This may be a convenience store, car wash, bank, grocery store, tavern, etc., referring to any type of retail or business establishment.  The existing land use map does not differentiate between highway businesses, home occupations, or general businesses, but classifies all of the above as commercial.  In the Town of Arena, commercial development occupies approximately 0.002 percent of the total land area. 

 

Manufacturing

Manufacturing refers to business and industry that is engaged in processing, manufacturing, packaging, treatment, or fabrication of materials and products.  As indicated by Table H.1, approximately 0.001 percent of the total land area in the Town is occupied by manufacturing uses. 

 

Forested

This classification is Production Forests and DNR-MFL Forests acreages combined.  In Arena it is the second largest classified land use.  Table H.1 shows approximately 36.3 percent of land in Arena is forest under these classifications.

 

Undeveloped

This classification refers to areas that were formerly classified as swamp/waste.  It is open land includes bogs marshes, lowlands brush land, and uncultivated land zoned as shoreland and shown to be wetland.  Approximately 5.6 percent of the total land in the Town of Arena is classified as undeveloped land. 

 

Other

Remaining land types that do not fall into the above categories, including federal, state, and county lands, school property, and cemeteries are classified as “other”.  Approximately 0.6 percent of land in the Town of Arena is listed under this classification.  Refer to Maps E.2 and E.8, Section E, Agricultural, Natural, and Cultural Resource Element, and Table H.1 for more information.

REDEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES

No redevelopment opportunities were identified by the Plan Commission at this time.

 

EXISTENCE OF BROWNFIELDS OR PROPERTIES SUITABLE FOR REDEVELOPMENT

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources maintains a database referred to as BRRTS (Bureau for Remediation and Redevelopment Tracking System).  The database lists contaminated lands and sites and includes the following: spills, leaks, Superfund sites, and other contaminated sites that have been reported to us or otherwise discovered.  The database contains eighteen records for Arena (the list does not distinguish between types of jurisdiction with the same name).  The list includes the following four categories: 

 

LUST:  A Leaking Underground Storage Tank that has contaminated soil and/or groundwater with petroleum.  Some LUST cleanups are reviewed by DNR and some are reviewed by the Dept. of Commerce.

 

ERP:  Environmental Repair Program sites are sites other than LUSTs that have contaminated soil and/or groundwater. Often, these are old historic releases to the environment.

 

SPILLS:  A discharge of a hazardous substance that may adversely impact, or threaten to adversely impact public health, welfare or the environment. Spills are usually cleaned up quickly.

 

No Action Required:  There was or may have been a discharge to the environment and, based on the known information, DNR has determined that the responsible party does not need to undertake an investigation or cleanup in response to that discharge. Reports of UST closures with no action required are filed in state archives.

 

The complete database is available from the Department of Natural Resources Website.  www.dnr.state.wi.us Activities on these sites including remediation is available for review on the website or by contacting the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.  The following listings contain the DNR Activity Number, Activity Type, Activity Name, Municipality, County, and a Priority Level.   As stated above, additional information is available from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

EXISTING AND POTENTIAL LAND USE CONFLICTS

There are a variety of land uses that can potentially cause land use conflicts.  There are two common acronyms used to describe land use conflicts – NIMBY’s (Not In My Back Yard) and LULU’s (Locally Unwanted Land Uses).  One of the most common occurrences, especially in a rural setting, is the presence of agricultural operations near non-farm populations. 

 

Text Box: Potential Land Use Conflicts
•	Landfills or Waste Facilities 
•	Jails or Prisons
•	Halfway Houses or Group Homes
•	Airports, Highways, Rail Lines
•	Low Income Housing
•	Strip Malls and Shopping Centers
•	“Cell” Towers, Electrical Transmission Lines
•	Large Livestock Operations
•	Industrial or Manufacturing Operations
Agriculture can affect adjoining small rural lots, which are used essentially for residential purposes.  Similarly, the presence of small rural lots creates an adverse influence on the continued operation of agriculture enterprise.  The issue of rural-urban conflict can arise when there is no separation between incompatible uses.  Land use conflicts may arise in such situations through noise, odor, farm chemicals, light, visual amenity, dogs, stock damage and weed infestation, lack of understanding, and lack of communication to name a few.  However, as the box on the right suggests, conflicts can arise from more than agriculture/residential situations.

 

In Arena, there is a land use conflict between agricultural land uses and Agricultural District (A1) zoning.  As the size of farm operations in the Town increase, there is also an increased demand for land for development.  The Plan Commission foresees this conflict to continue in the future.

 

INTEGRATED LAND USE

Certainly education and communication at all levels is fundamental to land use conflict resolution.  Finding a way to separate incompatible land uses while recognizing the benefits that can be achieved through land use integration is key.  Integration may be achieved through physical separation or a simple vegetative buffer designed to screen one land use from another.  Such practical strategies require landowners with potentially conflicting land uses to acknowledge their impacts and then design their operations or development to account for this impact.  A community approach utilizing physical solutions, planning strategies, and a long-term vision for the land will enable multiple and differing land uses to exist.

 

FUTURE LAND USE

Natural beauty, small town atmosphere, and being near family and friends were the top three reasons why people choose to live in Arena.  It stands to reason that people in Arena want to keep and improve their farms, maintain their homes and property, protect their investments, and improve their standard of living.  However, changes in agriculture promise continuing change in farming; existing homes and buildings will need remodeling, repairs, or improvements; new buildings will be constructed.  In order to help the Town of Arena achieve its vision, farming and forestry land uses need to be maintained while at the same time preserving Arena’s natural beauty and small town charm.
