Certified Survey Maps outside of the corporate limits but within the extraterritorial approval jurisdiction are also subject to approval by the City Plan Commission and Common Council.

The City Plan Commission may not consider any land division which did not have prior approval by the approving authorities for both the Town(s) and La Crosse County.

*The review and approval period may be up to 60 days in order to allow sufficient time for department review and submittal to the Common Council.
