Coulee Vision 2050
"Coulee Vision 2050 is a
long-range vision for the improvement of transportation systems in the La
Crosse-La Crescent region. The region’s towns, villages and cities each
recognize the vital link between land use decisions and transportation
outcomes, and will collaborate with each other over the coming decades to
encourage infill development, limit urban sprawl, and increase mobility

principles of Coulee Vision 2050 into local plans and policies, and through
sustained, proactive local leadership, our communities will improve quality
of life for all residents, strengthen the region’s economic competitiveness,
and preserve the unique coulee landscape."
