Private PropertyOctober 9, 2013

Polk County Wisconsin is currently revising its zoning ordinances. The Citizens Advisory Committee is almost done with its work. Some very good suggestions have been made to the committee and those suggestions will be considered at the next meeting.

An Online Petition has been created for people to sign to support some of the recommended changes.

The petition will be presented to the Citizens Advisory Committee early next week.

If you support the following ideas, you should sign the petition ASAP!

  • Incorporate the recently passed resolution which supports property rights, the free use of property, economic development, job creation and improvements in the tax base.
  • Be no more strict than NR 115. Specifically, setbacks should be the same for all owners and should not discriminate based on type of lake or river.
  • Grandfathered (non-conforming) structures should be eligible for a broad range of structural repairs.
  • There should be a 5 year statute of limitations.
  • If the Board of Adjustment is reversed by the court, the property owner should get their fees and costs reimbursed by the county.
  • Allow large bunkhouses on shoreland lots.
