Community Development

Munster's Community Development Department is responsible for the development of long and short range planning documents and enforcement of the Town's building codes and zoning ordinances. We work with developers, contractors, and the public to ensure that all structures in Munster are properly built and that they enhance their surroundings. Our goal is to make sure that Munster's neighborhoods and commercial districts continue to be the vibrant places they are today.
