Waukesha County Permit Guide


Complete version of the 2011 Permit Guide

  • Acknowledgements

    The Waukesha County Departments of Parks and Land Use and Public Works have prepared this Guide to Permits, Licensing and Development Services to help you understand the County’s development review and permitting processes. The Guide details the processes described in current editions of the Waukesha County Code, Wisconsin Administrative Rule and Wisconsin Statutes. This Guide will be periodically amended to reflect any changes to the processes. Since each project is different, we encourage you to contact the staff for assistance. We’re here to help you.
