Wisconsin is home to thousands of inland lakes. Walworth County is no different, boasting beautiful lakes, including Geneva Lake, Delavan Lake, and their surrounding neighbors. The beauty of these lakes draws a wide array of people, causing a delicate balance of maintaining the lakes’ beauty but also developing the land to its fullest potential. As such, the Shoreland Zoning laws have been adopted to create statewide standards for building around lakes in Wisconsin.
