Back to Front Page




Town of Chesterton residents currently living in new homes under temporary occupancy permits have until May 1 to meet the conditions under which those permits were granted.

Building Commissioner Dave Novak reminded folks at the Town Councilís meeting Monday night that itís better to get the work done sooner rather than later.

Temporary occupancy permits are granted when weather conditions--read winter weather conditions--make it difficult to complete exterior landscaping required under the Zoning Ordinance or Town Standards: for instance, the installation of eight feet of sod from the curb (sod farms are closed in the winter), or final grading (the ground is frozen in the winter).
