703.37 - ANNOT.

History: 1977 c. 407; 2003 a. 283.

703.37 - ANNOT.

NOTE: 2003 Wis. Act 283, which affected this section, contains extensive explanatory notes.

703.37 - ANNOT.

Condominiums are not a form of land use. A condominium unit set aside for commercial use runs afoul of a zoning ordinance prohibiting commercial use. When an intended commercial use did not comport with a town's zoning restrictions, approval of the condominium by the town was de facto rezoning. A town could not seek to avoid the restrictions of applicable extraterritorial zoning by aiming to define its action as something other than a zoning change. Village of Newburg v. Town of Trenton, 2009 WI App 139, ___ Wis. 2d ___, 773 N.W.2d 500, 08-2997.
