Planning Commission

In the interest of public health, the Brown County Area Plan Commission (Planning and Zoning) is following County Commissioner, Indiana Governor, and CDC guidance and will be holding APC and BZA meetings remotely. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to convening again to serve the public without putting that public at risk.

Hours of Operation for the Plan Commission and Building Department are subject to change due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
