Land Use


The City of La Crosse has adopted a Land Use Ordinance outlining building and height restrictions within 3 miles of the La Crosse Airport property boundary. The purpose of this ordinance is to protect the taxpayer's investment in the airport by ensuring that the approaches to the airport are protected from obstructions or otherwise incompatible land uses.  The municipalities of La Crosse, Onalaska, Holmen, Campbell, and Medary are included in part within the 3-mile protection zone.  Please contact your local zoning administrator for more information on specific requirements for your project.  A 7460-1 form is also required when building within the 3-mile zone, applications may be completed HERE.
