Kewaunee County Shoreland Zoning Ordinance

Shoreland property owners play an important role in preserving the quality of our lakes, rivers, and waterways.

As a shoreland property owner, your responsibilities extend beyond your individual property. How you take care of your shoreland property can impact an entire lake or waterway system.

The purpose of this ordinance is to help guide shoreland property owners, contractors, and others to understand the important provisions and how you can protect our valuable delicate natural systems that include the lakes, rivers, and waterways in Kewaunee County through good environmental practices.  The Kewaunee County Flood Plain Zoning Ordinance applies to all unincorporated areas of Kewaunee County. 

The purpose of this ordinance is to regulate floodplain development to protect the public health, safety, convenience, general welfare and tax base of Kewaunee County.

Kewaunee County Flood Plain Zoning Ordinance

It is very important to be aware of the floodplains of Kewaunee County.

Controlled development within these areas helps reduce the risk of damage and loss of life during flooding events.

Flooding is the #1 natural disaster and flood damage is not covered by most homeowners insurance.

In fact, 25% of flood claims are filed by people living in moderate-to-low risk areas.

The disaster assistance, if it’s available, is usually a loan you must repay with interest.

This is why it is best to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to the floodplains of Kewaunee County.
