How To Obtain Building, Driveway Permits or Rezone Land:
To obtain a permit for a new building or driveway, you must first be on the agenda for the Planning and Zoning meeting which is held on the LAST Monday of each month. There you will explain your plans, where the property is located and apply for the permit(s) with the applicable fee.
*Driveway Permits will not be given without Building Permits.
After your permit(s) are approved, you will then need to be put on the agenda for the Town Board Meeting, which is the FIRST Monday of each month. (The Monday following the PZ Meeting). There the Board will discuss your plans, make suggestions, and either approve or deny your applications.
*To get on the Planning and Zoning Meeting Agenda or The Town Board Meeting Agenda, email the Clerk at [email protected] with your name, phone number, address of the land where building or rezoning will take place, and what exactly you are planning to do. (i.e. Building a house, rezone to build a house, etc)
After full board approval, the next step is to be on the agenda for the Iowa County Planning Commission meeting.
