Shoreland Ordinance Changes Videos

The following is provided by the UW-Extension Center for Land Use:

The Wisconsin Legislature has made major changes to shoreland zoning in 2015-16. These changes are described in three short video presentations:

  1. Part1 Video – Introduction to shoreland zoning and recent changes to required shoreland lot sizes
  1. Part2 Video – Changes to shoreland setbacks, vegetation protection and impervious surface standards
  1. Part3 Video – Changes to standards for buildings located close to the shoreline

Whole video
(all three parts combined; 30 minutes)

We hope these videos will be helpful for lake organizations, county board members, and others interested in lakes and rivers. Please contact me if you have any questions.
