Merrillville Planning and Building
Complete Zoning Ordinance and Zone Map available at the Merrillville Clerk-Treasurer's Office.
Merrillville Planning & Building Department is responsible for the enforcement of the Town's building codes and zoning ordinances. We work with developers, contractors, and the public to ensure that all structures in Merrillville are properly built and that they enhance their surroundings. Our goal is to make sure that Merrillville's neighborhoods and commercial districts continue to be the vibrant places they are today.
The BZA or Board of Zoning Appeals hears requests for variances from Developmental standards, uses and special exceptions on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 6:30 p.m.
