Zoning and Land Use Permits

Zoning Permits are required for the construction or placement of any structure on your property.  This process ensures your property remains complaint with the setbacks and land use activities of the Zoning District you live in.  Placing a structure without a permit can cause your property to become a non-conforming parcel, which can be time consuming and costly to correct.   

To request information or submit a permit application, you may email us at: zoning@co.mower.mn.us
