Below are the forms that may be required of you to bring in for your appointment to obtain a permit. If you have any questions, please let us know.

Land Use Permit:
A Land Use Permit is a permit issued by the Shawano County Zoning Department to verify compliance with the provisions of the current Zoning Ordinance and other applicable County ordinances before any activity listed under Section X.8.09(2) of the Shawano County Zoning Ordinance may commence. This is not the same as a “permitted use,” as described in Section X.2.02(1) of the Zoning Ordinance, which instead is a land use that is allowable by right within a particular zoning district.
Please call for an appointment to obtain a permit. A filled out Land Use Information will be required. A Staff member will specify what paper work is required for your appointment and can provide copies upon request.

Conditional Use Permit:
A Conditional Use Permit may be required for a land use that is of a special nature due to its unique impact on surrounding uses, utilities, community character, transportation, and/or the environment, and that as a result requires approval of a conditional use permit prior to commencement of the use. This procedure will require a Public Hearing and longer timelines to acquire.
Please call for an appointment. A filled out Information for Conditional Use, a site development plan page, detailed plot plan and other applicable pages will be required. A Staff member will specify what paper work is required for your appointment and can provide copies upon request.

Variance:
A Variance is an approval to depart from the literal requirements of the current Shawano County Zoning Ordinance, which may be granted by the Board of Adjustment per the procedures and standards of Section X.8.10 of the Shawano County Zoning Ordinance. This procedure will require a Public Hearing and longer timelines to acquire.
Please call for an appointment. A filled out Information for Variance, a site development plan page, detailed plot plan and other applicable pages will be required. A Staff member will specify what paper work is required for your appointment and can provide copies upon request.

Zone Change/Comprehensive Plan Amendments:
A Zone or Comprehensive Plan Amendment change may be required to comply with the Shawano County Zoning Ordinance and/or the Towns Comprehensive Plan.
Please call for an appointment. The Zoning officer will specify what paperwork is required for your appointment.
