Building, Burning & Driveway Permit Information
Dunn County Zoning has requested that anyone who desires to build a structure in the town first conact the Dunn County Zoning first, at 715-231-6522, to see if any permits are required by Dunn County. If your building and/or remodeling project costs more than $2,500 you will need to complete a Town of New Haven Building Permit form and submit it to the Clerk. The town permit costs $45 and is good for one year. Town building permits are also available on this website under "Forms & Permits." Once you complete the town permit and mail it to the clerk with your check for $45, you may go ahead and begin building. You do not need to post a copy of the town building permit.
If you are building a new residential dwelling you will also need to contact Josh Melstrom, the building inspector, of Melstrom Inspections (located in Glenwood City, WI). Phone: (480) 261-9014. [email protected].

Email the Chair or the Clerk. They will issue a burning permit which is free. There will be a number on the permit that you must call each time before you burn.
When you call before you burn, you will be informed if there is a burning ban in effect. You will also give them the location of where you are burning. If you do not give the location of where you are burning and the fire department is called, you will be responsible for the costs.
Please call the Chair, or one of the Supervisors if the Chair is not available, regarding a driveway permit. There are certain specifications that must be met when putting in driveways. The cost for a driveway permit is $45, except in the case of a field driveway; those are free.
