WI Act 170 - Property Rights Protections - published April 16, 2012
Diane Misina April 14, 2012
Senate Bill 472 passed both houses and was enacted April 2, 2012, and published April 16, 2012.  The resulting legislation, Wisconsin ACT 170, provides significant protections for real estate owners in Vilas County and across Northern Wisconsin.  The new law addresses certain shoreland zoning standards and ordinances thta regulate the repair and expansion of nonconforming structures.  Among other protections, the law prohibits rules that call for the removal of a non-conforming building, premises, structure or fixture by an amortization ordinance.  (amortization ordinances call for a nonconforming structure to exist, but only for a period of time).  "An ordinance enacted under this section may not prohibit, or limit based on cost, the repair, maintenance, renovation, or remodeling of a nonconforming structure."  There are a number of other limits that are placed on local governments and hsoreland zoning to protect property owners.  We urge you to click and read the law which is 2.5 pages long here:  http://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/2011/related/acts/170.pdf
