When is a Building Permit Required?

* Requires zoning permit
** Garages that are in a residential area require a variance through the Village of Caledonia before they can apply for a zoning permit if over 1050 square feet.

Effective August 16, 2019, Racine County Development Services no longer provides zoning services for the Village of Caledonia. The Village’s Planning and Zoning Department now administers the zoning code as part of its Municipal Code of Ordinances. Please submit all zoning reviews to the Village.
