Call Zoning Department before Landscaping Your Lakeshore

In fall, the prices for shrubbery and trees are at seasonal lows.  So many lake residents plan shoreland or bank projects this time of the year.

Please remember that the county has its shoreland ordinances.  Now, any significant beach or bank development requires a permit.

So, before you begin your project, contact the County Land and Resource Management office (762-3863) to ensure that your project is in compliance with county regulations.  While major projects require a conditional use permit, the department issues its own permits for smaller projects.
