Economic Development Committee
The Economic Development Committee meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month at the Algoma Town Hall (15 N. Oakwood Road, Oshkosh, WI 54904). Meetings start at 6:00 pm.
This five-member committee addresses any economic development inquiries that may be made by a developer, site sector, realtor, or business seeking to locate in the Town. Committee members would also make recommendations to the Town Board on future development opportunities or forming business development tools, such as a tax incremental finance district. The Town is a member of the Oshkosh Area Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Oshkosh Economic Development Corporation. The committee would provide input on how to partner with these two organizations to recruit businesses to the Town.
Planning Commission meetings are held the second Wednesday of every month at the Algoma Town Hall (15 N. Oakwood Road, Oshkosh, WI 54904). Meetings start at 6:00 p.m.
The Planning Commission is comprised of seven members appointed by the Town Chair. The Commission members are primarily responsible for reviewing certified survey maps, zoning changes, site plans, and plats and making a recommendation to the Town Board for approval. Since the Town is under county zoning, the Planning Commission works in conjunction with the county’s Planning and Zoning Department to ensure there are no issues that may affect the Town or county in future land-use decisions.
The Parks Committee meetings are held the last Wednesday of every month at the Algoma Town Hall (15 N. Oakwood Road, Oshkosh, WI 54904). Meetings start at 6:00 p.m.
The Parks Committee oversees the Town’s parks and recreation areas. The five members make recommendations to the Town Board on improvements they feel are needed with associated costs. Examples may be playground equipment, walking paths, along with repairs and maintenance. This Committee will also oversee the update to the Towns Parks and Open Space Plan and the implementation of the plan’s stated goals. The committee may also propose to the Town Board policies that address safety or use concerns in the parks.
