Vilas County Zoning - Home


















 Vilas County has acquired a new web domain name.  As such, the e-mail addresses for county employees have changed.  All county e-mail addresses now end with @vilascountywi.gov.  The old style addresses will remain in service along with the new addresses for some time, but we request that you make the necessary changes in your contacts now to avoid potential issues. For a complete list of office personnel contact information please see the "Contact Us" section below, or click here for a list of Deputy Zoning Administrators.  We thank you for your attention to this matter and apologize for any inconvenience.

 

Before you begin that building or lot clearing project this summer, remember that Vilas County Zoning requires permits for most construction projects.  Call the office to ask if your project requires permits today.
