Permit Guide Procedures
Conditional Use Permit
WHEN: Conditional Uses are uses which are not permissible by right in certain Zoning Districts, but which may be permitted by the terms of the Zoning Ordinance, if certain conditions are met.
WHY: Certain uses and situations are unique and require separate review and approval through a Conditional Use (CU) process. These uses shall be evaluated in accordance with the Waukesha County Zoning Code - Appendix A and the Waukesha County Shoreland and Floodland Protection Ordinance - Appendix B, copies of which are available online and in the office of the Waukesha County Clerk.
WHO: Both the Waukesha County Park and Planning Commission and the Town Planning Commission must approve a Conditional Use Permit. Town Board action is also required for Quarries and Cemeteries. The Waukesha County Department of Parks and Land Use – Planning and Zoning Division issues the Conditional Use Permit when all conditions of approval have been met. A copy is mailed to the applicant and the town. See Staff Who Can Help.
HOW: Applicant must submit a complete application packet and fee to the Planning and Zoning Division Staff for review and scheduling.
