In response to recent changes to Chapter NR 115, Wisconsin Administrative Code, St. Croix County has been working to update and modernize the county’s shoreland regulations. The proposed rules replace regulations based on setbacks and minimum lot sizes with a more flexible approach based on site-specific mitigation of stormwater and vegetative impacts caused by shoreland development. County shoreland regulations apply only to unincorporated shoreland areas.
Copies of the draft ordinance, planning documents and related maps and appendices are available at the Community Development Department, Government Center, Hudson and the Agriculture Service & Education Center, Baldwin.
