Civic makes sense as well, however would that not limit the type of offices to
municipal only, and exclude country government? My built-in Oxford defines:

civic: "of or relating to a city or town, esp. its administration; municipal"
        "of or relating to the duties or activities of people in relation
         to their town, city, or local area"
municipal: "of or relating to a city or town or its governing body"

landuse=organi[z|s]ational ? [oxford allows the 'z'-spelling for BrE, but 's' as well]

could subsume greenpeaces, red crosses, civil defence, doctors without borders,
political parties, and maybe even the disputed religious organisations, what else?
