County Master Plan Process

In 2018, Lac qui Parle County hired Wold Architects and Engineers to facilitate a Master Plan process to create a long-term framework for managing the County's building assets.  This process included gathering data through employee interviews, site reviews, and documentation reviews, and then completing a full condition and functional assessments of every building.  The resulting Master Plan included a proposal for initial implementation which includes the construction of two new buildings, as well as relocating several major County functions.  

Due to large file size (350 pages), the final Master Plan document is not available on this website, but can be obtained at the County Administrator's Office in the Courthouse in Madison, or by contacting County Administrator Jake Sieg at jake.sieg@lqpco.com or (320) 598-7261.
