subch. II of ch. Adm 92 Subchapter II — Relocation Plan
Adm 92.24 Adm 92.24 Purpose. The purpose of a relocation plan is to assure that an agency will provide adequate relocation payments and services and to determine whether displaced persons can be satisfactorily relocated. The department may not approve a relocation plan unless an agency submits evidence and assurances that relocation payments and services provide the following:
Adm 92.24(1) (1) Displaced persons shall have an opportunity to occupy comparable, decent, safe and sanitary replacement housing;
Adm 92.24(2) (2) Displaced business, farm operation or nonprofit organizations shall have an opportunity to occupy a comparable replacement and shall be assisted in reestablishing with a minimum of delay and loss of earnings;
Adm 92.24(3) (3) Prompt and complete relocation payments will be made;
Adm 92.24(4) (4) Project and program activities are designed to minimize displacement hardship;
Adm 92.24(5) (5) Persons covered under Wisconsin's Open Housing Law shall be assisted to ensure equal opportunity to obtain housing from within a community's total housing supply.
Adm 92.24(6) (6) Persons shall receive equal treatment in the relocation process;
Adm 92.24(7) (7) Persons shall be given a reasonable time to move, and may not be required to move unless a comparable replacement is provided for or available;
Adm 92.24(8) (8) Persons shall receive assistance consistent with needs, including referrals for social service, job and housing counseling, and transportation to available replacement dwellings.

Adm 92.26 Adm 92.26 Time of plan submission.
Adm 92.26(1) (1) Agency with eminent domain power. An agency vested with eminent domain power, or undertaking a project where such power exists, shall file a relocation plan and receive approval in writing from the department before proceeding with initiation of negotiations on any project which may involve displacement of a person.
Adm 92.26(2) (2)Agency without eminent domain power. An agency undertaking a project where the power of eminent domain does not exist, shall submit and receive approval of a relocation plan from the department, before a property is acquired for the project, provided:
Adm 92.26(2)(a) (a) Any option taken or offer to purchase made by the agency is conditioned upon receipt of relocation plan approval from the department before a property is acquired, and
Adm 92.26(2)(b) (b) Tenants who occupy a property and who may be required to move, are contacted by the agency within 7 days after all contingencies have been removed from an option or an accepted offer to purchase. Such contact shall be for the purpose of informing a tenant of any relocation payments and services available and to obtain information for the purpose of preparing a relocation plan.
Adm 92.26 Note Note: The purpose of this alternative method of submitting a relocation plan is to ensure that agencies without the power of eminent domain, who are unable to adequately plan for relocation before the project has sufficiently developed to the implementation stage, comply with relocation planning requirements as soon as feasible and before an agency is legally or financially committed to the acquisition of a property where displacement may occur.
