CLUE creates learning
opportunities for communities to help them make sound land use
decisions that result in a sustainable Wisconsin.
communities make well-informed land use decisions with confidence. Their
decisions are legally, ethically, ecologically, and economically sound.
- We believe that public involvement is fundamental for making sound land use decisions.
- We believe that natural resources are the foundation of land use decision-making.
- We will consider equity issues as we make decisions.
- We will base our decisions on our mission.
- We will stand behind our mission and beliefs regardless of our sources of funding or in-kind services.
- Any sources of funding or in-kind services will accept and understand our mission and beliefs.
- We believe that a sustainable society is one that can maintain an
adequate or better level of economic activity indefinitely, without
undermining either the ecological or social systems upon which the
society is dependent, and whose political system retains the full
confidence of the citizenry.

The Center was established in response to advice of College advisors
and the effects of increasing population and patterns of development at
odds with sound land and resource management principles. Because the
quantity and quality of our natural resources are largely determined by
the impacts of human activities on the landscape, the Center was seen as
a way to provide administrative focus and programming coordination for
land use education.
