Welcome to the Village of Weston Online Permitting

Here you can view permit info, schedule and cancel inspections, apply for permits and submit plans for review. Please see below for examples.


Use the Permit Application option to submit small plans and "over-the-counter" permits. This includes plans and permits for:

  • Residential Building: New homes, accessory structures, decks, fences, driveways.

  • Demolition
  • Electrical: Rewiring, circuit extensions, service upgrades, and breaker box upgrades/relocation.
  • Home Improvement: Roofing, siding, windows/door, non-structural remodeling.
  • HVAC: Fire places and wood stoves, furnaces, central air units.
  • Plumbing: Lateral connection, hot water heaters, bathrooms and fixture relocation.
  • Right-of-Way: Excavation, moving, special event on public property, street privileges.
  • Signs: Permanent, one-time use.
  • Private Wells: Non-consumption/irrigation on public water.
  • Zoning: Commercial occupancy, home occupation, shoreland and temporary uses.

Using Evolve to submit an online application is easy! Please use the following steps:

  • 1) If this is your first time using the new site, click "New Account" in the upper right-hand corner; a) Fill in the fields using your information, try and provide as much information as possible. b) Create a password on the same page and click "Save". c) If you are creating a new user name and you get the error stating your password is already associated with another account, then select the "Forgot Password" link and follow that process.
  • 2) Click on "Permit Application" on the left-hand side (if you have created a new account you will automatically be taken to this page after you have clicked the save button).
  • 3) Select the permit type associated with your project from the drop-down menu. Then select the appropriate permit application from the second drop-down menu.
  • 4) Enter the address and the street name, without and prefixes or suffixes. If the address you type in generates a "not in jurisdiction" error, then most likely you are not in the Village or Town of Weston. If you are unsure, please call staff at 715-359-6114.
  • 5) All the required fields are highlighted in yellow. You will not be allowed to save the application without filling in these fields. If you leave the page, then you will have to start the permit application process over again.
  • 6) Add any additional contractors or contacts (i.e. property owners, agents, managers) that are associated with the project and/or who should be contacted regarding the permit.
  • 7) There are several permits that require additional items to be uploaded (i.e. site plans, operational plans, sign layouts). If these items are required, then the system will not allow you to move forward until these items are uploaded.
  • 8) Once the application is submitted, then staff will review it for completeness and issue an invoice, which can be paid online (in the near future), by mail or in person. Once payment is received, then a permit will be emailed to you and you may begin working on the project.
  • 9) After the work has been completed, log in to the site and submit a request for inspection. An inspector will contact you with a window of time and day of when the inspection will take place. After the inspection is completed you will be notified and the permit will be finalized and closed out.

If you have any questions regarding this process, please feel free to contact staff.
Thank you for your cooperation, Planning and Development Staff Village of Weston
