The City Code is the document that contains the ordinances that govern land use and other activities 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.  In addition, recently adopted ordinances may not yet be reflected in this on-line version of the City Code.  Prior to commencing any project, we encourage you to contact the City of Lake Elmo’s Planning Department at 651-747-3912 to ensure that you have an accurate and complete understanding of all the requirements contained within the City Code.
