Governor Doyle signs AB-260 effectively overruling Wood v. City of Madison.

On May 18th, Governor Doyle signed AB-260 (Wisconsin Act 399) effectively overruling Wood v. City of Madison, 2003 WI 24. In Wood, the court ruled that the City of Madison could reject a plat in the extraterritorial subdivision area based on the proposed use. The new law prohibits a municipality (city or village) from denying approval of a plat or certified survey map on the basis of the proposed use of the land in the extraterritorial area (unless there is a plan or regulation adopted under the extraterritorial zoning statute – 62.23(7a)(c)).
