Proposed zoning change NOT approved

On March 15, 2022 the Iron County Zoning Committee met at the courthouse in Hurley, WI to discuss a change in the shoreland zoning ordinance at the request of a developer. This request would have modified the definition of “lot” by permitting a greater building density on certain lake and riverfront properties.  The Iron County Zoning Office presented an analysis of WI counties showing that 40 of the 72 counties have a similar “lot” definition as Iron County’s.  Several TFFTL POA members attended and were able to voice their comments.  Committee members discussed the ordinance change to which they unanimously passed a motion to end consideration of the ordinance change.

The Board would like to thank the County Zoning Committee for their efforts in addressing this issue and protecting the TFF-TL and other lake shoreland in Iron County.
