TOWN OF SCOTT
The Town of Scott, population 3575, is located in northeastern Brown County adjacent to the City of Green Bay. The Bay of Green Bay shoreline constitutes the Town’s northwest boundary. The Town is experiencing increased residential, commercial and industrial development pressured due to its proximity to the City of Green Bay, University of Wisconsin—Green Bay, the highly sought after bayshore property, and the improvements to STH 57 from a two-lane rural highway to a divided four-lane expressway (this expressway is the main highway to Door County).
Within the Town, there are a number of small, unincorporated communities, including Bay Settlement, Red Banks, Royal Scot and New Franken. The most defining natural characteristic of the Town is the Niagara Escarpment, often referred to as “the ledge” . The undeveloped areas of the Town are a mixture of scattered home sites, quarries, active farming operations, and wetlands/woodlands
