Rezoning

RezoningWhen


You want to amend the zoning district classification for an area.

Why


The intended use is not a permitted use by right or conditional use in the existing zoning district classification.

How


It is required that you meet with County Development Staff prior to submitting your rezoning petition. Staff will review your proposed development to verify the proper zoning district needed and discuss the development process. A rezoning petition is a formal application submitted based upon the procedures described in the Kenosha County General Zoning and Shoreland / Floodplain Zoning Ordinance. Pre-conferences are usually attended by town officials to assure the request is compatible with town adopted land use plans. We consider zoning a partnership with the towns.

You must submit a complete Rezoning Petition and the appropriate fee based upon the Kenosha County Department of Planning and Development Fee Schedule.

You can anticipate that the rezoning process will take approximately four to eight weeks upon submittal of a completed petition. Please keep in mind that this process may take longer if your rezoning petition is tabled at the town or county level and/or if additional information becomes necessary.
