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.

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 Henry Elling, the Zoning Administrator.  For areas outside of shoreland/wetland areas (if Henry is not available), please contact Mike at the number listed at the top of the page.

If you have questions on landscape projects, retaining walls, or patios in the shoreland/wetland district, please call Henry.
