If you plan to do any building, your first step is to contact the La Crosse County Zoning and Land Information Office (400 4th Street North, Room 3170, La Crosse, WI 54601). Please call them at 608-785-9722 with preliminary questions and to obtain permits.  La Crosse County is the zoning and planning authority for the Town of Shelby.
When you have the necessary County permits (if needed), bring them to Town Hall with a copy of the building plans to apply for a Town building permit.

If you create a new residential building lot with a certified survey map, there is a processing fee of $25 plus a "green" fee of $700, which is used for park development, maintenance and equipment.

Sub-dividers are required to dedicate land for public parks and pay a fee of $250 per lot before the final plat is approved.
