Inland Lake Classification


Some jurisdictions use lake classification schemes as a guideline for regulating shoreland development. Computer visualizations can help lake managers and property owners envision the impacts of these various zoning scenarios on undeveloped property.

Let's take a look at a three-tiered classification scheme as we plan our development for this wooded lakefront lot. Based on actual Burnett County (WI) regulations, Class 1 offers the highest development opportunities while Class 3 results in the highest level of shoreland protection.

Class 1
Class 2
