Land Information Council
The Land Information Council (formerly MCAMLIS) is a public-private consortium begun in 1990 by and between Milwaukee County, the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District, AT&T (previously Wisconsin Bell), WeEnergies (previously Wisconsin Electric Power Company, and the Wisconsin Gas Company). A steering committee comprised of representatives from each of the entities plus representatives from the City of Milwaukee and the Intergovernmental Cooperation Council of Milwaukee County oversees all activities of the consortium. In 2016, the MCAMLIS Steering Committee reorganized to abide by state statute Section 59.72(3m), which requires that all counties with a land information office establish a Land Information Council. Henceforth, the MCAMLIS Steering Committee was renamed by County Board Resolution 16-104 and shall be referred to as the Land Information Council (LIC).
MCAMLIS was formed to develop and maintain the automated mapping base essential for the creation of a modernized land information system for Milwaukee County. In so doing, the modernized LIC is overseeing implementation of the Milwaukee County land records modernization plan set forth in the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission's (SEWRPC) Community Assistance Planning Report No. 177, Feasibility Study for a Milwaukee County Automated Mapping and Land Information System. This plan, published in October 1989, was formally adopted by the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors on February 15, 1990, and was approved by the Wisconsin Land Information Board on January 7, 1991. This plan has since been updated on five-year intervals, most recently dated 2010. The mapping effort detailed in the County plan builds upon historic, coordinated base mapping efforts carried out by Milwaukee County, the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District, some of the cities and villages in the County and the SEWRPC.
