The planning process in the Village of Ephraim is quite involved.

Below you will find links to various applicable codes and forms that should provide the residents of Ephraim with some basic information and resources on the Village Zoning Process. The most important information we can offer on this page would be to contact Brent as early in the planning process as possible.
