Application Process

Step 1 - Meet & Work with the Planner

All applicants must make an appointment with the Planner. Planner Appointments are held on the first Thursday of every month immediately prior to each Plan Commission meeting. Please call the Clerk at Town Hall or use the Planner Appointment Request form to submit your appointment request to the Clerk. The Clerk will notify you of the next available timeslot. If you are unable to appear in person for your scheduled appointment, we can accommodate that by setting up a digital appointment via the Zoom platform.

You will be emailed a confirmation of the appointment as well as any applications needing completion. Please complete the forms and bring them along with the application fee with you to the appointment.

Appointment & Review

During your appointment, the Planner will review your request and check all Lisbon Codes, Zoning Code, State Statutes and Shoreland/Floodland Code if the land is in Waukesha County Shoreland/Floodland jurisdiction. Click the link to view Waukesha County's jurisdictional GIS map. If your land is in the purple shaded area, Waukesha County Parks and Land Use will need to be included in your approval process. Please make sure to contact their Planner of the Day at (262)548-7790 before requesting your Planner Appointment.

The Planner will review your application with you at the appointment and let you know if additional information is needed. If it is, and the requested information is submitted 30 days prior to the next Plan Commission meeting, your request will be on the next Plan Commission agenda. All required forms, applications and fees are to be submitted at the Town Hall during office hours AND via email to the Clerk as a PDF. Twelve copies of all documents are required, and plan sets must be large enough to be legible.

Step 2 - Attend the Plan Commission Meeting

You or a representative must attend the meeting to answer any questions raised by the Plan Commission.
