What's New?

  • ePlanReview Uprgade
    The City of Boise, specifically, the Planning & Development Services Department is pleased to announce we will be upgrading our ePlanReview software the first weekend in August. Permits active prior to the August upgrade will use the existing process through completion. The new software will ensure that approved drawings for all new Building permits will not be available for download until all fees are paid. That is, Commercial, Residential and Fire permits applied for after 8/7.  ePlanReview will be “closed for business” from Friday August 4th at 3:00pm MST until Monday August 7th at 8:00am MST. For best results use Internet Explorer 11 (32-bit only) as your default browser.  Click here for browser configuration instructions. For questions, please email or call (208) 608-7070.

  • Establishing New Residential Base Valuation
    The City of Boise is updating the method to establish base value for new residential homes. For additional information, please visit the new Residential Building Permit Valuation Policy on the Building Department Policy page.
