The Boundary County Planning & Zoning Commission meets at 5:30 p.m. the third Thursday of each month, typically in the main courtroom in the Boundary County Courthouse.  The commission's duties include reviewing the Boundary County Zoning and Subdivision Ordinance and Comprehensive Plan, making decisions on various land use applications, including conditional use permits, and variances, and making recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners on platted subdivisions,  zoning amendments and area of impact agreements with incorporated cities within Boundary County.  Each member of the commission has resided within Boundary County for a minimum of two years, as required by Idaho Code.


In order to schedule a Public Hearing of the Planning & Zoning Commission, requests must be made prior to the fourth (4th) Thursday (4 weeks) in advance of the hearing date. For example, to schedule a hearing for September 17, 2015 an approved request must be received prior to  August 20, 2015.


The Boundary County Zoning and Subdivision Ordinance applies to all lands in Boundary County which lie outside the incorporated city limits of Moyie Springs and Bonners Ferry.  All applications are processed by the zoning administrator from the Planning and Zoning Office located in Room 16 in the lower level of the Boundary County Courthouse.
