Who needs a permit?

  • A building permit is required for anyone seeking to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, remove, improve, convert, demolish a structure or change its use. It is also required for fences over 6 ft. in height.
  • The building permit must be obtained before the start of any work and prominently posted at the job site.

Why are permits required?

  • The permitting process is the best way to ensure quality construction and safe building conditions

Commercial Building

  • Commercial building plans over 2,500 square feet must be completed by a design professional. Depending on the scale of the project, there are two different types of review. The major and the minor site review. 

Property Covenants (if your property is subject to covenants)
  • Although the City does not enforce contracts amongst private property land owners, Idaho courts do recognize properly authorized and recorded covenants, conditions, and restrictions as a contract and Idaho courts will enforce them. It is highly recommended that you obtain a letter of compliance for your records from your property owner’s association regarding your proposed improvements before you commence construction.

Tiny Homes, Modular Homes, Manufactured Homes, and RVs (Recreational Park Trailers)

  • The Idaho Department of Building Safety has put together a great information pamphlet on the regulations for tiny homes, modular homes, manufactured homes, and RVs (Recreational Park Trailers). Click here to view the pamphlet.
