AMENDMENTS TO TOWN CODE
At its June 17, 2021 meeting, the Town Board approved amendments to the Town’s Zoning ordinance regulating camping in the Town. The following provides a brief explanation of the changes:
First, there were no changes made to camping regulations within Lake District (LD) Zoning. Camping regulations remain the same for Lake District-zoned parcels.
Second, camping regulations were extended for all other zoning districts which allow camping in the Town. These include R-1, R-1C, R-2, R-4, R-5 and FR zoning districts. Within those districts, going forward, any parcel will need to abide by the camping regulations found in Town Code Sec. 360-9C in addition to the applicable district’s existing use regulations related to number of camping units. Campers will need to purchase an annual camping permit for $25 and the camping season of April 14 to November 30 will apply to the properties. Off-season camping is allowed with a $10 permit for no more than two occurrences for a cumulative total of no more than 21 days during the off-season of December 1 through April 13. Additional guest camping units are permitted with a $20/per unit guest camping permit. Permits must be displayed below the address sign. Additionally, campers will have to meet the water/septic requirements as outlined in Town Code Sec. 360-9C. Lawfully existing camping units as of the effective date of the ordinance amendments may be considered a nonconforming use for camping season and Town water/septic requirements.
We appreciate your cooperation as we share these amendments to the Zoning ordinance with the community. As a reminder, camping permits are available at Town Hall and at Pritzl’s Trading Post (at the customer service/post office desk). If there are questions, please feel free to contact the Town.
