The Office of Zoning assists towns with creating goals for their communities relative to the planned development patterns and to regulate land uses within the county through the enforcement of comprehensive zoning, shoreland, subdivision, floodplain and nonmetallic mining operation ordinances as well as related Wisconsin Administrative Codes to achieve those state goals. A key component to meeting the goals of the community is to provide natural resource and water quality protection information to property owners that not only increases awareness but improves land management practices. The uses of land are regulated through a permitting process whereby applicants identify anticipated uses and structural setbacks and our office ensures compliance with the applicable codes. Land Uses are regulated to maintain the health, safety and welfare of our citizenry as well as the integrity of our environment.
