Waupaca County’s Highway Department is requesting that the approximately 42 acres of land it owns in the town Lind be annexed into the city of Waupaca. Waupaca’s Plan Commission recommended approval of the request when it met last month. The request will next go before the Waupaca common council for two readings. The highway department plans to build its new highway facility on the land and needs city sewer and water to do so. The property is located on County Trunk A and is contiguous to the city. It is currently farmland and would be annexed into the city as agricultural. Upon annexation of the property, the city would have one year to decide which zoning classification is best for it.
