Department of Planning & Development

Cottage Grove’s recently upgraded I-94/CTH N interchange serves as the gateway between the Madison metro area and the I-94 Madison/Milwaukee corridor. The Cottage Grove Interstate Commerce Park is strategically located adjacent to the interchange. Development opportunities can also be found in the N. Main St. Corridor, along W. Cottage Grove Rd., and in the historic Olde Town core. The Village is home to three active TIF districts, and incentives are available for high quality projects.

The immediate Cottage Grove area is home to a top school district (Monona Grove) and ample recreational opportunities including three golf courses, Village and Dane County parks, and the western trailhead of the Glacial Drumlin State Trail which links Cottage Grove to Waukesha for bikers and hikers. The Village also features a newly built, high quality housing stock.

The Village of Cottage Grove employs an experienced and capable staff, dedicated to ensuring a smooth and predictable development process. Staff is available for pre-submittal meetings to provide local knowledge and guidance, and will become a trusted partner as your project grows to fruition. The Department of Planning & Development is your first stop for questions about both immediate development opportunities and long term land use planning.
