In November 2009 the Village of Brown Deer completed its first master plan since 1965. The Village of Brown Deer Comprehensive Plan 2030 serves as a guide for future Village land use decisions and contains the nine required elements of the State of Wisconsin's "Smart Growth" law. A summary of the plan, along with the full document and appendix, are available for download (Warning: files are large). Hard copies are available for review at Village Hall or the Brown Deer Public Library.
A comprehensive plan update was completed in 2023 and is linked below.
