Establishing regions for lakes permit programs increases efficiency

Flow

Are you planning to develop your shoreland property?  A recent change in how the new Shoreland Permit Program and the long-established Lake Encroachment Permit Program are administered will make the permitting process more efficient.

While the two permit programs regulate different activities, their jurisdictional boundaries meet at mean water level. The Shoreland Permit Program regulates activities on the lakeshore, from mean water level to 250 feet outward on lakes greater than 10 acres.  The Lake Encroachment Permit Program regulates activities from the mean water level inward. As many shoreland projects cross this boundary, a single permit analyst will now be administering both programs on a regional basis.

For more information, or to obtain a shoreland permit or lake encroachment permit, please contact the appropriate Regional Permit Analyst.
