Planning and Community Development
The City of Delafield contracts to third party vendors for Planning, Inspection, and Engineering services.
For planning and general "where do I begin?" queries, please start with the City Planner.
If you would like information about smaller projects such as fences, swimming pools, single family residential home additions, etc., please call the City Building Inspector.
If you already have a plan in place and need to fine tune building plans or storm water agreements, please call our City Engineer.
Any fees incurred from the third party vendors may pass through to the applicant. TheProfessional Services Agreement
must be signed before being seen by any Council, Board, Committee, or Commission.
We accept credit cards, cash, and checks. Credit Card payments can be made here:

Because this process is so complex and a third party planner is involved, we encourage you to confirm your completed application with both the City and the Planner prior to the deadline.
Please note the process may be cyclical depending on how many times you are asked to revise. Other steps may be included in this process such as a preliminary Plan Commission presentation prior to a full review of material or a Public Hearing which will require additional notices and time.

We encourage all applicants to submit items well before the deadlines. All application material must be submitted in its entirety. No late portions to a submission will be accepted. Use the deadline calendar to ensure you are submitting your items on time. Items submitted to these third party vendors will be passed to the City Hall Clerk’s Office and included in the packet for the Council, Board, Commission, or Committee. The third party vendors have a deadline of their own to get items to the Clerk for publication. Late items will be placed on the next agenda for that meeting group.
