Confirm your parcel's zoning classification by checking the zoning map.
Yes, you can try to locate one at the Clerk's Office or at the Waukesha County Register of Deeds. These entities only have a copy of the survey if one was furnished at the time the home was built. If you have a copy and it shows "proposed" - this will not be accepted - a copy showing the "as built" is what we would determine the measurements from.
Yes. Any plumbing work, HVAC, electrical, or overall building structural changes or floor plan changes require a permit. If you are not sure, please contact our building inspector.
Yes. For an in-ground pool, a 4-foot fence is required. It must have a self closing and self latching gate. Above ground pools also require a 4-foot fence if any portion of the pool wall is less than 4-feet to the ground. Above ground pools also need self closing self latching gates on decks attached to the pool OR if a ladder is used, it must be able to be locked from use. Example: the above ground pool is built into the side of the hill slightly. The distance from the ground to the top rail of the pool on that side is 2 feet. A fence would be required.
The fee schedule explains how fees are determined. The building inspector will determine the building permit fees.
