RE: O'Malley NRPPHi Jim,Unfortunately,
I
do not have a comprehensive list of communities in the Milwaukee Metro area that have treeordinances and/or require natural resource investigations beyond the state/federally required wetland assessments. It'sreally a patchwork of different regulations! It's always a good idea to check in with the local municipality before divingtoo far into a project!Good luck!Lesley

Thanks for your email below, but can you tell me how Franklin's natural protection policies compare to otherommunities. Do we have the most restrictive and most comprehensive natural protection policies of any othernunicipality in the Milwaukee metropolitan area?Also, can you list what communities do or do not have a tree preservation ordinance. For example,
I
know that OakCreek and the City of Brookfield's Planning Departments do not require a developer or a landowner to submit a reportto protect or preserve any percentage of the trees
in
a development.Thanks
for
your help,Jim O'Malley

RE: O'Malley NRPPHi Jim,The term "Natural Resource Protection Plan (NRPP)" is specific to Franklin.Other cities have ordinances that cover various aspects of natural resource protection. For example, Mequonand Delafield have tree preservation ordinances and Mequon requires Stewardship Plans and natural areaprotection in conservation subdivisions.Wetlands are protected by WDNR and US Army Corps regulations state-wide.Shoreland zoning applies to townships outside Cities/Villages. Each county has its own regulations, protections,and setbacks from resources (e.g. bluffs, wetlands, etc.).Takecare.
