Town of Perry – Dane County Zoning Ordinance Information

POSTCARDS

Dane County is in the process of making a first-ever revision to their Chapter 10 Zoning Ordinance.  Postcards are being mailed to landowners in the Town of Perry notifying them of the proposed change in zoning on their property.

The proposed changes to the zoning categories will not affect the current uses of your property nor should it affect your property taxes.  However, the new zoning code will need to be adopted by each town.

There will be a Special Meeting of Landowners at the Perry Town Hall on June 14 at 7:30pm.  Dane County Senior Planner, Brian Standing, will be giving a presentation on the new ordinance and will be available to answer any questions.

Information on the new zoning ordinance

CURRENT zoning district fact sheets

PROPOSED zoning district fact sheets

Dane County also has an interactive mapping tool that shows both the current and proposed zoning for any parcel in Dane county:  enter your property address in the upper right magnifying glass, or zoom to the desired location.  Clicking on any parcel allows you to see detailed parcel information, as well as the proposed zoning district fact sheets.  You can also switch to aerial mode by clicking on the basemap icon in the lower right corner.

If you have any questions, please contact Dane County Planning and Development at (608)267-4115 or attend the Town of Perry public information meeting on June 14.

Are You Recycling Right?

The Do’s and Don’ts of Recycling

When non-recyclable items (contamination) end up in your recycling, they have the potential to turn the entire load into trash, resulting in contamination and additional processing and disposal costs.

Here are some tools for success –

RECYCLING DO’s

DO recycle all empty plastic bottles, cans, paper and cardboard.
DO keep foods and liquids out of recycling.
DO keep plastic bags out of recycling.

*Plastic grocery bags can be recycled at retailers such as Miller and Sons Supermarket and Pick-n-Save.  For a list of other locations, click here.

RECYCLING DON’TS

DON’T bag your recyclables – plastic bags and film get tangled in the machinery.
DON’T include food-soiled items – they can turn an entire load of recycling into trash.
DON’T add sharp or dangerous materials like needles and electronics – they can cause injury to our workers.
DON’T toss in “tanglers” like rubber hoses and wires – they can shut down an entire recycling center!
DON’T include bulky items like propane tanks or construction debris.
