Are You Planning on Building a Garage, Shed or Deck?

 

To assist you in acquiring permits to build garage, shed or deck the following checklist has been developed. If you can answer "Yes" to the following questions you have the necessary county permits required to begin construction of your structure:

Do you have a copy of your registered deed?

A registered deed is required to be submitted to the Zoning Department before your zoning permit will be issued. The registered deed is the document that shows ownership of the property.

Have you submitted your zoning and building permits to the Zoning Department?

A zoning and building permit must be submitted to the Trempealeau County Zoning Department for approval prior to any construction or earth moving. No construction or earth moving may take place until you have received an approved zoning and building permit.

Have you contacted your Municipality regarding your construction project?

Be sure to ask the Municipal Official if any town permits are required.

Have you completed your Erosion Control Plan?

A completed Erosion Control Plan must be submitted to the Zoning Department and approved prior to any construction or earth moving. If you need assistance with completing your application you can contact the Trempealeau County Land Conservation Department .

Have you paid your permit fees?

Applications will not be processed unless the application fees accompany them. There are no fees for an erosion control plan. Please make checks payable to the Trempealeau County Zoning Department.

Have you received your zoning permit from the Trempealeau County Zoning Department?

No construction or earth moving may take place until you have received an approved zoning permit. By ordinance the Trempealeau County Zoning Department has 30 days to review most permit applications from the date they are received. However, the Zoning Department makes every effort to review and issue permits within 5 working days. You will be mailed your permit, which authorizes construction and earth moving to begin. Do not start construction or earth moving until you have received your permit. If you have questions on the status of your permit please contact the Zoning Department at 877-538-2311 ext. 223.
