The Sauk Prairie Comprehensive Plan
The Sauk Prairie Comprehensive Plan provides a blueprint for future growth, change, revitalization, conservation and preservation of the Sauk Prairie area. For the purposes of The Sauk Prairie Comprehensive Plan, Sauk Prairie is defined as the Town of Prairie du Sac, and the Villages of Prairie du Sac and Sauk City. The Plan is intended to guide for decisions related to farmland preservation, development proposals, public investments, intergovernmental cooperation, economic policy, and a host of other factors.
With the 10th year anniversary of the joint village and town adoption of its Comprehensive Plan, the three governments are in the process of a plan update. As required by state law, the comprehensive plan needs to be updated and all three jurisdictions have budgeted the funds to complete the process in 2016.

Joint Recreational Plan
The two villages, the school district, and the town completed a joint recreational plan for the area to determine the long term recreational needs and recommend improvements to meet that future demand. The completion of this park and open space plan now makes the community eligible for state funding for acquiring land and constructing recreational improvements.
