Municipal Code

City Code is the document that outlines how property can be used within the City of Lake Elmo. These documents can be complex and may require that several sections be consulted to obtain all relevant regulations on a given topic. Additionally, recently adopted ordinances may not yet be reflected in this online version of the code. Prior to commencing any project, we encourage you to contact the planning department at (651) 747-3911 to ensure you have an accurate and complete understanding of all city code requirements. Although every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the material published online, the only official edition of the City Code is the printed version maintained by the City Clerk.

The City Code is available by clicking here.

A PDF version of the city Zoning Code can be viewed here. Zoning CodeRecent revisions to the City Code are found as PDF documents below.  When the City Code is updated in the link above, these sections will be integrated and removed from this location.
