Comprehensive Revision of Dane County Zoning Ordinance

In February of 2016, the Dane County Board adopted 2016 Resolution 431, which created the Zoning and Land Regulations Comprehensive Revision of Chapter 10 Subcommittee, and charged that subcommittee with overseeing the comprehensive revision of the Dane County Zoning Ordinance (Chapter 10, Dane County Code) under s.59.69(5)(d), Wisconsin Statutes.

The county Zoning Ordinance (Chapter 10, Dane County Code) governs land uses in unincorporated towns. It was originally adopted in 1938, substantially modified in 1950 and has been periodically amended over the years since. It has never before been comprehensively revised. The Department of Planning and Developmentā€™s Zoning Division, under the direction of the Zoning Administrator, administers the Zoning Ordinance.
