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, lot line adjustments and variances, and making recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners on platted subdivisions, special use permits, 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.
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.
If you are uncertain as to the type permit required, please call (208) 267-7212. Once the application is complete, mail with fee to Planning and Zoning, PO Box 419, Bonners Ferry, ID 83805.
