Planning, Redevelopment and Zoning Division

Making Gary safe, livable, and clean is the overarching vision that guides all planning efforts. Planning encourages progressive land use decisions, consistently works to improve City of Gary ordinances and processes, and carefully reviews each development plan. We provide assistance to businesses, developers, and residents as they seek permits and licenses, develop site plans and start business operations so we can continue to rebuild and strengthen our City together.

We believe that accountability in government starts with providing a process that everyone can understand and a streamlined approach to problem-solving.
