Comprehensive Plan Update

Welcome to the City of Brookfield 2050 Comprehensive Plan

This is the place to learn about the development of the ten-year update of the City of Brookfield’s Comprehensive Plan.

The Comprehensive Plan is a blueprint for the short-range and long-range growth, redevelopment, and preservation of the city and will be used by city officials as a policy guide to help make decisions regarding the growth and development of Brookfield. The 2050 Comprehensive Plan is an update of the city’s existing 2035 Comprehensive Plan, which was adopted in 2009.

How to Get Involved

The public open house meeting on September 12 will serve as one opportunity for the community to engage with City staff and the consultants working to update the comprehensive plan. Attendees are encouraged to share their thoughts and discuss the topics of the plan at the meeting. Printed materials will be supplied with instructions for providing further feedback on the plan.

For those who cannot attend the public meeting but still wish to participate, the printed materials of the meeting will be available at the Community Development counter at City Hall after September 12. Community Development staff will be accessible to summarize and discuss the topics of the plan with those interested in submitting feedback when picking up the printed materials at City Hall.

City officials are also conducting a web-based survey with invitations sent to a random sample of households throughout the community. Not all residents will receive a survey invitation, and only one adult age 18 or over will be allowed to complete the survey online for the household. If your household receives an invitation to participate in the survey, it is a vital opportunity to provide feedback on the topics, strategies, and priorities of the comprehensive plan. Completed surveys will remain confidential. The City has hired the University of Wisconsin Survey Center to administer the survey to ensure the privacy of survey respondents.

You can also provide input now by sending an email to the Community Development Department ( or by calling directly at (262) 796-6695.
