Zoning Ordinance Rewrite Project



The City of Oshkosh is nearing the conclusion of updating the City’s Zoning Ordinance and Map. The purposes of the project are to modernize zoning regulations, streamline zoning processes, encourage reinvestment and sustainability, and implement the City’s Comprehensive Plan. The process to complete the Zoning Ordinance and Map is anticipated to be finalized prior to January 1, 2017. Public input is encouraged throughout and opportunities remain, so that the Zoning Ordinance reflects community wishes. Please review the content on this page for the Zoning Ordinance updates and information.
