Site Plan Review and Development Committee
In 2012, the City of Gary instituted a streamlined review process for zoning clearances and building permits. A Site Plan Review and Development (SPRD) Committee was formed to review requests for all commercial/industrial and home projects involving new construction or remodeling (including facades, signage, and parking lots).
The Site Plan Review & Development Committee requests that the owner and selected contractor come before the SPRD Committee and present an overview of the proposed petition/project. After each presentation, the petitioner will either receive a decision on permitting, Plan Commission, Zoning Board review, or will be asked for additional information.
