Notice from Dane County Emergency Management:
Dane County Emergency Notification System

Dane County’s Emergency Notification System is used to alert people and provide important information during an emergency.  In the event of an emergency, officials can identify the affected area and send a message that describes the situation and recommends the protective actions residents should take. The system will automatically call out to all land-line telephone numbers within that geographic area and deliver a recorded message.

You can also sign up to receive alert messages on your cell phone, by text message, or by Email.  These are a popular and effective means of receiving emergency information.  You will, however, need to register your contact information in order to receive these alerts.

Signing up with this service will enable local authorities to alert you about potential life-threatening and public safety threats in your community. Residents who sign up may be contacted with information about emergencies like:

  • Hazardous materials incidents
  • Emergency evacuations
  • Missing persons
  • Dangerous persons
  • Public health alerts

 

When signing up, you will be prompted to create a new account. You will then be asked to provide your address and personal contact information, such as your email address or your cell phone number for text messages.

Additional information on Dane County’s notification system and a link to sign up
can be found at: https://em.countyofdane.com/warning

Town of Perry – Dane County Zoning Ordinance Information

Dane County is in the process of making a first-ever revision to their Chapter 10 Zoning Ordinance.  Postcards were mailed to landowners in the Town of Perry in June 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.

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.
