Livestock Facility Siting Review Board

​​​​​​The Livestock Facility Siting Review Board is a 7-member group that reviews appeals of local decisions on permit applications for new and expanding livestock facilities. The board elects a chair, vice chair and secretary at its first meeting each year. The board does not have a regular meeting schedule. It meets when there is administrative business or an appeal. 

Appeals Process

Any aggrieved person can appeal a local siting decision. An "aggrieved person" is an applicant for a permit, or anyone who lives or owns land within 2 miles of a proposed livestock facility.

Appeals must be filed within 30 after the local government issues its decision, using the form at right. If the person follows a local appeals process, he/she must file the appeal within 30 days after that process is complete.

Members of the public may communicate with the board by mail to Livestock Siting Review Board, DATCP, P.O. Box 8911, Madison, WI 53708-8911 or by email to the address at right.
