ZONING:

A zoning permit is required when a structure or part thereof is located, erected, moved, reconstructed, extended, enlarged, or converted.  This zoning permit is required before a building permit can be issued.

We have two different zoning areas depending on where your property falls.  There is a shoreland/wetland area and a non-shoreland/wetland area (regular zoning).  Please click on the map link to see if your property falls in the shoreland/wetland area.  If your property falls in a shoreland/wetland area, an additional fee will be required for any zoning permit.  Base permit fee is $50 plus $2 per $1000 of Value total construction cost (material and labor).  There may be other fees required for mitigation, etc.  For Zoning Map click here.   For Zoning Code click here.

If you have questions on size, setbacks or what you can build, add onto, etc. in the shoreland/wetland district, please contact the Village Hall at 262-567-2757 and ask to speak with Brian (Depies).  Brian is the shoreland/wetland zoning official and is available by appointment only.  For areas outside of shoreland/wetland areas, please contact Mike at the number listed above, or Henry at 262-567-2757.
