"Coulee Vision"

A Long-Term Plan for Growth & Transportation

in the

La Crosse – La Crescent Region 2015 - 2040

Coulee Vision, the metropolitan transportation plan for the La Crosse and La Crescent area is now complete!

This long-range plan looks out to the year 2040 to determine what our needs will be in the future. It includes an inventory of existing conditions, a summary of the transportation challenges that we face in the Coulee Region, the strategies that we have used in the past and will continue to use, and new strategies and action steps to help us meet the land use and transportation goals for the area.

We encourage you to read through the chapters of Coulee Vision.

Comments received from our resource agencies, DOTs and other interested parties have been incorporated into the “updated” chapters posted on September 3, 2015.  Here is a summary of the comments that we received.

The La Crosse Area Planning Committee will be asked to approve the Coulee Vision at its September 16, 2015 meeting scheduled for 4:30 pm in room 3220 of the La Crosse County Administrative Center, 400 4th St N, La Crosse, WI. All are welcome to attend.
