The land development process, whether simple (adding a shed in the backyard) or complex, involves various types of reviews. Some projects may in fact require a series of different reviews.

The basic steps in the review process are described below. Scroll past that section to see a list of the different types of review procedures. If you are unsure about what reviews are required, contact us and tell us more about your project.

Get Forms
You can get the correct application forms by clicking on the procedure name below. A pdf of the application form will be posted there. You can download the pdf to your device.
Complete Application
Fill out the application form as it applies to your project. Depending on the nature of your project, you may need to work with a design professional, engineer, or professional surveyor. Make sure you prepare other supplemental materials that may be needed to fully describe the project.
Submit Application Materials
Once you have a complete application submittal, please submit it online. You'll need to fill out some basic information and also upload your application form and potentially other supplemental materials.
Most, but not all applications, have an application fee. The amount of the fee will obviously reflect the amount of effort that's needed to review and process the application. If there is a fee, it will be stated when you submit it online.
Completeness Check
Once we receive your application and the required application fee, we will review it to make sure it is complete and ready for formal review.
Review and Decision
After the application is deemed complete, the formal review process begins. Some types of reviews are handled administratively by staff. Other reviews are evaluated by the Plan Commission and/or the Town Board at a public meeting.
Follow Up
If an application is approved, there may be conditions that must be met before you can move to the next step in the process (like getting a building permit). The approval document you receive will list any conditions of approval.
