Extra-Territorial Zoning Boards
Extra-Territorial Zoning Boards exist between the Town of Geneva and the City of Elkhorn and the Village of Williams Bay for lands which exist within specific pre-arranged limits of those communities. Once an issue has been presented to the Town of Geneva Planning Commission and Town Board and acted upon by both the applicant can then apply to the City of Elkhorn or Village of Williams Bay for an Extra-Territorial Hearing for properties located within the ETZ Boundary with those municipalities. This is a limited area adjacent to those communities. All zoning matters for lands located within 1000 feet of a navigable waterway within the Town of Geneva must still proceed to the Walworth County Planning Agency for further action.
Extraterritorial Plat review priveleges are maintained by the City of Lake Geneva and the City of Elkhorn for lands located within 1 1/2 miles of the corporate limits of those cities; all plat changes are also reviewed by the Town of Geneva and Walworth County, including lot line adjustments.
Please contact the Planning Commission Secretary, Mary Van Lue (262) 248-9513, for information regarding which Zoning Agency has authority over the property which is under consideration. Always start with the Town of Geneva with your initial inquiries as the other governmental bodies will require Town of Geneva input prior to any final action on your request.
