CHAPTER 113 OF THE CODE OF THE VILLAGE OF BROOKLYN
SHORELAND-WETLAND ZONING
THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE VILLAGE OF BROOKLYN DO ORDAIN AS FOLLOWS:
Chapter 113: Shoreland-Wetland Zoning of the Code of the Village of Brooklyn is hereby repealed and recreated to read as follows:
Chapter 113 - SHORELAND-WETLAND ZONING[1]
Footnotes:
--- (1) ---
State Law reference— Shoreland-wetland zoning, Wis. Stats. § 61.351.
 
Sec. 113-1. - Definitions.
The following words, terms and phrases, when used in this chapter, shall have the meanings ascribed to them in this section, except where the context clearly indicates a different meaning. For the purpose of administering and enforcing this chapter, the terms or words used herein shall be interpreted as follows: Words used in the present tense include the future; words in the plural number include the singular number. The term "shall" is mandatory, not permissive. All distances, unless otherwise specified, shall be measured horizontally.
Accessory structure or use means a detached subordinate structure or a use which is clearly incidental to, and customarily found in connection with, the principle structure or use to which it is related and which is located on the same lot as that of the principle structure or use.
Boathouse, as defined in Section 30.01(1d), Wis. Stats., means a permanent structure used for the storage of watercraft and associated materials and includes all structures which are totally enclosed, have roofs or walls or any combination of structural parts.

Conditional use means a use which is permitted by this chapter provided that certain conditions specified in the ordinance are met and that a permit is granted by the planning/zoning commission designated by the village board.
Department means the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
Development means any manmade change to improved or unimproved real estate, including, but not limited to, the construction of building, structures or accessory structures; the construction of additions or substantial alterations to buildings, structures or accessory structures; the placement of buildings or structures; ditching, lagooning, dredging, filling, grading, paving, excavation or drilling operations; and the deposition or extraction of earthen materials.
Drainage system means one or more artificial ditches, tile drains or similar devices which collect surface runoff or groundwater and convey it to a point of discharge.
Environmental control facility means any facility, temporary or permanent, which is reasonably expected to abate, reduce or aid in the prevention, measurement, control or monitoring of noise, air or water pollutants, solid waste and thermal pollution, radiation or other pollutants, including facilities installed principally to supplement or to replace existing property or equipment not meeting or allegedly not meeting acceptable pollution control standards or which are to be supplemented or replaced by other pollution control facilities.
Fixed houseboat, as defined in Section 30.01(1r) Wis. Stats., means a structure not actually used for navigation which extends beyond the ordinary high-water mark of a navigable waterway and is retained in place either by cables to the shoreline or by anchors or spudpoles attached to the bed of the waterway.
Navigable waters means Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, all natural inland lakes within the state, and all streams, ponds, sloughs, flowages and other waters within the territorial limits of the state, including the state portion of boundary waters, which are navigable under the laws of this state. Under Section 281.31, Wis. Stats., not withstanding any other provision of law or administrative rule promulgated thereunder, shoreland ordinances required under Section 61.351, Wis. Stats., and Chapter NR 117, Wis. Admin. Code, do not apply to lands adjacent to farm drainage ditches if:
(1)  Such lands are not adjacent to a natural navigable stream or river;
(2)  Those parts of such drainage ditches adjacent to such lands were not navigable streams before ditching; and
(3)  Such lands are maintained in nonstructural agricultural use.
"Wisconsin's Supreme Court has declared navigable bodies of water that have a bed differentiated from adjacent uplands and levels or flow sufficient to support navigation by a recreational craft of the shallowest draft on an annually recurring basis (Muench v. Public Service Commission, 261 Wis. 492 (1952) and DeGayner and Co., Inc., v. Dept. of Natural Resources, 70 Wis. 2d 936 (1975)). For example, a stream which is navigable by skiff or canoe during normal spring high water is navigable, in fact, under the laws of this state though it may be dry during other seasons."
Ordinary high-water mark means that point on the bank or shore up to which the presence and action of surface water is so continuous as to leave a distinctive mark such as by erosion, destruction or prevention of terrestrial vegetation, predominance of aquatic vegetation, or other easily recognized characteristic.
Shoreland-wetland district means the zoning district, created in this shoreland-wetland zoning ordinance, comprised of shorelands that are designated as wetlands on the wetlands inventory maps which have been adopted and made a part of this chapter.
Shorelands means lands within the following distances from the ordinary high-water mark of navigable waters; 1,000 feet from a lake, pond or flowage; and 300 feet from a river or stream or to the landward side of the floodplain, whichever distance is greater.
Unnecessary hardship means that the circumstance where special conditions, which were not self-created, affect a particular property and make strict conformity with restrictions governing area, setbacks, frontage height or density unnecessarily burdensome or unreasonable in light of the purposes of this chapter.
Variance means an authorization granted by the board of appeals to construct or alter a building or structure in a manner that deviates from the dimensional standards of this chapter.
Wetland alteration means any filling, flooding, draining, dredging, ditching, tiling, excavating, temporary water level stabilization measures or dike and dam construction in a wetland area.
Wetlands means those areas where water is at, near or above the land surface long enough to support aquatic or hydrophytic vegetation and which have soils indicative of wet conditions.
(Ord. of 9-11-2000, § 42.01)
 
Sec. 113-2. - Statutory authorization, findings of fact, statement of purpose and title.
(a)  Statutory authorization. This chapter is adopted pursuant to the authorization in Section 61.351, Wis. Stats.
(b)  Findings of fact and purpose. Uncontrolled use of the shoreland-wetlands and pollution of the navigable waters of the municipality would adversely affect the public health, safety, convenience, and general welfare and impair the tax base. The legislature of the state has delegated responsibility to all municipalities to:
(1)  Promote the public health, safety, convenience and general welfare;
(2)  Maintain the stormwater and floodwater storage capacity of wetlands;
(3)  Prevent and control water pollution by preserving wetlands which filter or store sediments, nutrients, heavy metals or organic compounds that would otherwise drain into navigable waters;
(4)  Protect fish, their spawning grounds, other aquatic life and wildlife by preserving wetlands and other aquatic habitat;
(5)  Prohibit certain uses detrimental to the shoreland-wetland area; and
(6)  Preserve shore cover and natural beauty by restricting the removal of natural shoreland cover and controlling shoreland-wetland excavation, filling and other earth moving activities.
(Ord. of 9-11-2000, § 42.02)
 
Sec. 113-3. - General provisions.
(a)  Compliance. The use of wetlands and the alteration of wetlands within the shoreland area of the municipality shall be in full compliance with the terms of this chapter and other applicable local, state or federal regulations. (However, see section 113-5, for the standards applicable to nonconforming uses.) All permitted development shall require the issuance of a zoning permit unless otherwise expressly excluded by a provision of this chapter.
(b)  Municipalities and state agencies regulated. Unless specifically exempted by law, all cities, villages, towns, and counties are required to comply with this chapter and obtain all necessary permits. State agencies are required to comply if Section 13.48(13), Wis. Stats., applies. The construction, reconstruction, maintenance and repair of state highways and bridges by the state department of transportation are exempt when section 30.2022(1), Wis. Stats., applies.
(c)  Abrogation and greater restrictions.
(1)  This chapter supersedes all the provisions of any municipal zoning ordinance enacted under Section 61.35, 62.23 or 87.30, Wis. Stats., which relate to floodplains and shoreland-wetlands, except that where another municipal zoning ordinance is more restrictive than this chapter, that ordinance shall continue in full force and effect to the extent of the greater restrictions, but not otherwise.
(2)  This chapter is not intended to repeal, abrogate or impair any existing deed restrictions, covenants or easements. However, where this chapter imposes greater restrictions, the provisions of this chapter shall prevail.
(d)  Interpretation. In their interpretation and application, the provisions of this chapter shall be held to be minimum requirements and shall be liberally construed in favor of the municipality and shall not be deemed a limitation or repeal of any other powers granted by state statutes. Where a provision of this chapter is required by a standard in Chapter NR 117, Wis. Admin. Code, and where the ordinance provision is unclear, the provision shall be interpreted in light of the Chapter NR 117 standards in effect on the date of the adoption of the ordinance codified in this chapter or in effect on the date of the most recent text amendment to this chapter.
(e)  Severability. Should any portion of this chapter be declared invalid or unconstitutional by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of this chapter shall not be affected.
 
(Ord. of 9-11-2000, § 42.03)
 
Sec. 113-4. - Shoreland-wetland zoning district.
(a)  Shoreland-wetland zoning maps. The following maps are hereby adopted and made part of this chapter and are on file in the office of the municipal clerk:
(1) The most recent version of the Wisconsin Wetland Inventory as depicted on the Department of Natural Resources Surface Water Data Viewer is made part of this ordinance.
(2)  United States Geological Survey maps titled Evansville Quadrangle, photo revised 1961 and Attica Quadrangle, photo revised 2016.
 
(b)  District boundaries.
(1)  The shoreland-wetland zoning district includes all wetlands in the municipality which are five acres or more and are shown on the most recent version of the Wisconsin Wetland Inventory as depicted on the Department of Natural Resources Surface Water Data View that has been adopted and made a part of this chapter and which are:

  1.  Within 1,000 feet of the ordinary high-water mark of the navigable lakes, ponds or flowages. Lakes, ponds or flowages in the municipality shall be presumed to be navigable if they are shown on the United States Geological Survey quadrangle maps or other zoning base maps which have been incorporated by reference and made a part of this chapter.
  2.  Within 300 feet of the ordinary high-water mark of navigable rivers or streams, or to the landward side of the floodplain, whichever distance is greater. Rivers and streams shall be presumed to be navigable if they are designated as either continuous or intermittent waterways on the United States Geological Survey quadrangle maps or other zoning base maps which have been incorporated by reference and made a part of this chapter. Floodplain zoning maps adopted in this section shall be used to determine the extent of floodplain areas.

(2)  Determinations of navigability and ordinary high-water mark location shall initially be made by the zoning administrator. When questions arise, the zoning administrator shall contact the appropriate district office of the Department of Natural Resources for a final determination of navigability or ordinary high-water mark.
(3)  When an apparent discrepancy exists between the shoreland-wetland district boundary shown on the official zoning maps and actual field conditions at the time the maps were adopted, the zoning administrator shall contact the appropriate district office of the Department of Natural Resources to determine if the shoreland-wetland district boundary, as mapped, is in error. If Department of Natural Resources staff concur with the zoning administrator that a particular area was incorrectly mapped as a wetland, the zoning administrator shall have the authority to immediately grant or deny a correct zoning district. In order to correct wetland mapping errors or acknowledge exempted wetlands designated in subsections (c) and (d) of this section, the zoning administrator shall be responsible for initiating a map amendment within a reasonable period.
(c)  Filled wetlands. Wetlands which are filled prior to March 18, 1994, the date on which the municipality received final wetland inventory maps, in a manner which affects their wetland characteristics to the extent that the area can no longer be defined as wetland, are not subject to this chapter.
(d)  Wetlands landward of a bulkhead line. Wetlands located between the original ordinary high-water mark and a bulkhead line established prior to May 7, 1982, under Sec. 30.11, Wis. Stats., are not subject to this chapter.

STATUTORY AUTHORIZATION

This ordinance is adopted pursuant to the authorization in Wis. Stat. sec. 61.35 and
61.353 or 62.23 and 62.233.
1.2 FINDING OF FACT AND PURPOSE
Uncontrolled use of shorelands and pollution of the navigable waters of the municipality would adversely affect the public health, safety, convenience, and general welfare and impair the tax base. The Legislature of Wisconsin has delegated responsibility to all municipalities to:
1.  Promote the public health, safety, convenience and general welfare;

2.  Limit certain land use activities detrimental to shorelands; and

  1. Preserve shore cover and natural beauty by controlling the location of structures in shoreland areas.

2.0 GENERAL PROVISIONS
2.1 COMPLIANCE
The use of shorelands within the shoreland area of the municipality shall be in full compliance with the terms of this ordinance and other applicable local, state or federal regulations. All permitted development shall require the issuance of a zoning permit unless otherwise expressly excluded by a provision of this ordinance.
2.2 MUNICIPALITIES AND STATE AGENCIES REGULATED
Unless specifically exempted by law, all cities, villages, towns, and counties are required to comply with this ordinance and obtain all necessary permits. State
agencies are required to comply if Wis. Stat. sec. 13.48(13) applies.
2.3 ABROGATION AND GREATER RESTRICTIONS
2.31 This ordinance supersedes all the provisions of any other applicable municipal ordinance except that where another municipal ordinance is more restrictive than this ordinance, that ordinance shall continue in full force and effect to the extent of the greater restrictions, but not otherwise.
2.32 This ordinance is not intended to repeal, abrogate or impair any existing deed restrictions, covenants or easements. However, where this ordinance imposes
greater restrictions, the provisions of this ordinance shall prevail.
2.4 INTERPRETATION
In their interpretation and application, the provisions of this ordinance shall be heldto be minimum requirements and shall be liberally construed in favor of the municipality and shall not be deemed a limitation or repeal of any other powers granted by the Wisconsin Statutes or Wisconsin Constitution.
2.5 SEVERABILITY
Should any portion of this ordinance be declared invalid or unconstitutional by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of this ordinance shall not be affected.
nbsp;
2.6 APPLICABILITY OF SHORELAND REGULATIONS
The Shoreland Zoning regulations apply only to the following shorelands:

  1. A shoreland that was annexed by the Village of Brooklyn after May 7, 1982, and that prior to annexation was subject to a county shoreland zoning ordinance under Wis. Stat. sec. 59.692; and
  2. A shoreland that before incorporation by the Village of Brooklyn was part of a town that was subject to a county shoreland zoning ordinance under Wis. Stat. sec. 59.692 if the date of incorporation was after April 30, 1994.

2.61     Determinations of the ordinary highwater mark location shall initially be made by the Zoning Administrator.  When questions arise, the Zoning Administrator shall contact the appropriate district office of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for a final determination of ordinary highwater mark.

2.6.2. EFFECT OF EXISTING LAND DIVISION, SANITARY, ZONING AND OTHER REGULATIONS.
The lands regulated by this ordinance are subject to all applicable provisions of the Village of Brooklyn Municipal Code. Where the provisions of this ordinance are more restrictive than other regulations in the Municipal Code, the provisions of this ordinance shall apply.
3.0. SETBACKS FROM THE WATER.

  1. Building and Structure Setbacks.
  2. All buildings and structures shall be set back at least 50 feet from the ordinary high-water mark.
  3. Reduced Principal building setback: A setback less than the 50’ setback required from the ordinary high water mark shall be permitted for a proposed principal structure and shall be determined as follows:
  4. Where there are existing principal buildings on each adjacent lot, the setback shall equal the average of the distances the two existing principal buildings are set back from the ordinary high water mark or 35’ from the ordinary high water mark, whichever distance is greater.
  5. Exempt Structures within Setback Area
  6. Stairways, Walkways, and Lifts. A stairway, walkway, or lift is permitted in the shoreland setback area only when it is essential to provide pedestrian access to the pier because of steep slopes or rocky, wet, or unstable soils, and when the following conditions are met:

(a) There are no other locations or facilities on the property which allow adequate access to a pier. Only one (1) stairway or one (1) lift is allowed, not both, except where there is an existing stairway and the lift will be mounted to or is immediately adjacent to the existing stairway.

  1. MAINTENANCE, REPAIR, REPLACEMENT OR VERTICAL EXPANSION OF NONCONFORMING STRUCTURES. An existing structure that was lawfully placed when constructed but that does not comply with the required shoreland setback may be maintained, repaired, replaced, restored, rebuilt or remodeled if the activity does not expand the footprint of the nonconforming structure. Further, an existing structure that was lawfully placed when constructed but that does not comply with the required shoreland setback may be vertically expanded unless the vertical expansion would extend more than 35 feet above grade level. Municipalities may allow expansion of a structure beyond the existing footprint if the expansion is necessary to comply with applicable state or federal requirements.
  2. MAINTENANCE, REPAIR, REPLACEMENT OR VERTICAL EXPANSION OF STRUCTURES THAT WERE AUTHORIZED BY VARIANCE. (s. 59.692(1k)(a)2. and (a)4.) A structure of which any part has been authorized to be located within the shoreland setback area by a variance granted before July 13, 2015 may be maintained, repaired, replaced, restored, rebuilt or remodeled if the activity does not expand the footprint of the authorized structure. Additionally, the structure may be vertically expanded unless the vertical expansion would extend more than 35 feet above grade level. Municipalities may allow expansion of a structure beyond the existing footprint if the expansion is necessary to comply with applicable state or federal requirements.

5.0 Definitions
In this ordinance:
5.1 “Principal building” means the main building or structure on a single lot or parcel of land and includes any attached garage or attached porch.
