Zoning Letters

A municipal zoning letter is a legally recognized document which informs property owners, lenders, and buyers of zoning laws related to the property based on the Village of Menomonee Falls' current zoning codes. A zoning letter informs a potential buyer of what can and cannot be done with a commercial property based on the current zoning and municipal codes.

A zoning letter can provide information on legal land uses, zoning, GIS information, zoning district standards, development history, and code compliance. A zoning letter is valid for six months from the date of issuance. A zoning letter will provide a general description of:

  • The zoning district
  • References to any applicable zoning and development standards plus the zoning history related to the current zoning entitlements
  • Legal land uses, zoning, zoning district performance standards
  • Development history
  • Code compliance


Zoning letters must be requested in writing. You may use our Zoning Letter Application (PDF). A payment of $50 (per parcel number) is due at the time of the request. Payments and requests can be mailed to:

W156N8480 Pilgrim Road
Menomonee Falls, WI 53051-3140


The zoning letter does not verify compliance with development regulations, parking, or certify legal non-conforming status. Zoning Letters may include:

  • The zone map
  • Municipal code pertaining to the parcel

The Village of Menomonee Falls, Waukesha County, and the State of Wisconsin each have different rules and regulations, therefore zoning due diligence is required. A zoning verification letter may be one part of the overall zoning research and analysis. The zoning letter provided by the Village of Menomonee Falls is based on information furnished to the Village of Menomonee Falls and may not include information from other entities.
