Due to Covid-19 it is strongly recommended that you make an appointment before you travel to the LURM office. This will ensure the right staff and resources are available to answer your questions. Phone appointments are highly encouraged.
Due to high permit volumes, turnaround times are currently 3-4 weeks. Please plan accordingly.
You can make an appointment by calling our main number at 262-741-4972.
The Land Use and Resource Management (LURM) Department is responsible for the implementation of the County's Planning, Zoning, Sanitation, and Conservation programs and regulations.
LURM is located at the Government Center ("Old Court House", on the square in downtown Elkhorn). Our offices are located on the second floor, accessible via the center stairwell or main elevator.
Please contact LURM with any questions you may have. An appointment should be made before coming to the office if you may need assistance from our staff. Making an appointment allows each customer with the best opportunity to receive the service that is deserved. Our goal is to ensure your compliance with regulations and sound land ethics. We are here as a resource for you, to provide information, technical and when possible, financial assistance.
You can find information on approved permits using our online GIS program. Launch the County's interactive GIS mapping system, OneView Mapping Application, to explore information available from a map. This program allows you to view a variety of information about a property using a mapping system.
Alternatively, it is also possible to find permits related to a tax parcel using the permit database. This system takes you directly to our "LURM Search" permit database, but you must know your tax key number to use this database.
