Land Use That Protects Our Future Generations

By Portage County Business Council

We’re all interested in economic development — growing existing businesses and attracting new ones. Community planning is key to sustainability — how a community uses the land for residential, agricultural or commercial purposes can have long term effects on the land and people. The Center for Land Use Education (CLUE) is a joint venture of the College of Natural Resources at the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point and Cooperative Extension in collaboration with UW System institutions. Its purpose? Land use planning and management education.

Does your community need a little support when making land use decisions? CLUE is here to help you do so.
