Zoning Board of Adjustment / Appeals Workshops
Zoning refers to the use of the public regulatory power to specify how land may be used and developed. The intent of zoning is to balance individual property right with the rights of the general public to a healthy, safe and orderly living environment. The primary role of a zoning board of adjustment/appeals is to review and decide case where there is an alleged error in a zoning decision or where a relaxation of the ordinance is sought.
The Center for Land Use Education offers zoning board of adjustment/appeals workshops serving multi-county areas of Wisconsin. Workshops are designed for newly appointed zoning board members, veteran zoning board members tackling complex issues, and planning and zoning staff whose job it is to support the zoning board.
Workshops may be arranged through your county Cooperative Extension office or directly through the Center for Land Use Education by contacting us at 715-346-3783 or firstname.lastname@example.org
