Permit Fees

The Village of Shorewood Development and Building Fees are formally approved by Ordinance or Resolution, and therefore are subject to change with Village Board approval. Be advised that development impact fees are also included within Annexation Agreements, which are negotiated and approved on a case by case basis and may vary per development or date of approval.  A development’s Annexation Agreement should be reviewed for specific fee information.
