REPM forms page 

This page is part of the Real Estate Program Manual (REPM). It is the official site to view all current approved WisDOT eminent domain real estate specific forms, READS templates and related documents. Forms are listed by category, then alphabetical by title. Any form referred to as a "READS template" is listed here in name only. This type of form must be generated directly from READS. Contact Camille Wilcox at (608) 261-8618 with questions regarding READS.

"Paper only" forms for these projects are found on the Local Program Real Estate Forms page. All deleted/obsolete forms are listed at bottom; users are reminded to stop using any reproductions of those forms immediately.

For any "READS templates," Camille Wilcox (608) 261-8618 will be your contact for design, review and edits prior to being put into READS as a template and authorized for approved use.
