Planning strives to enhance the livability of the City of Hayden by working with citizens, business owners, and the development community on land use management, the environment, economy, and public and private property development.
For all planning, zoning, and engineering related applications, a pre-development meeting is required prior to application submittal. This meeting is a no-cost meeting which may include the following participants: Community Development Director, City Engineer, Planner, Building plans examiner/inspector, and/or representatives from Northern Lakes Fire Protection District and the affected School District. Commercial building permit applications, site plan applications, land use, and subdivision applications are accepted only following a pre-development meeting. Pre-development meetings are held for one hour increments and are available for scheduling on Wednesdays at 8:30 a.m., 9:45 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:15 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. Advanced scheduling is recommended as available time slots may fill quickly. Scheduling can be done by phone at (208) 209-2022 or by e-mail to email@example.com.
The meeting is informational in nature and is provided to assist you during permitting and development processes. Feedback is based on an assessment of the information provided by you, as the applicant, at the meeting as well as codes, regulations, and fees in effect at the time of the meeting. Timing of application as well as alterations to the site plan and/or project scope, and detailed project review, among other things, may affect the applicability of those items discussed. Because the pre-development review meeting is designed to provide conceptual level review, no approvals are intended or implied until the permit application, review, and approval process has been completed; as such, the items noted herein may not be addressed completely or accurately at the meeting. Notes customized to your development proposal will be drafted during the meeting and emailed to the contact person identified during the meeting.
The City of Hayden will no longer be receiving applications in paper format, but has streamlined the process with a user friendly online portal. This portal will allow our customers to apply for Planning and Engineering applications. Apply HERE.
Customers to include applicants, general contractors, owners, engineers, architects, and others are able to apply, upload plans and documents, pay fees online, track and schedule their own inspections, and determine where their project is in the review process all from their customer dashboard page.
To utilize the Customer Portal you will need to create an account. We ask that you create one account per company. By creating only one account anyone within your Company will have the availability to submit and check the status of plan reviews and inspections. If you want other e-mails associated with your account (other individuals in your company), you can add them in after you register. Register Here. Be prepared to have a user name and password. Since this searches the entire database for the name (our software provider is in a number of states), your first choice may not be accepted. All entities which use BS&A software, can be searched using the same user name and password. For example, if you are doing work for the City of Sandpoint, they also use BS&A and the same user name and password will work for both jurisdictions.
When uploading your Planning and Engineering submittals, please utilize the following checklists as a guide to your on-line submittal.
Zone (Comprehensive Plan) Text Amendment
Utility Compliance Permit: Hayden City Code Title 8 Chapters 5 and 6 require all above ground utility infrastructure to apply for a Utility Compliance Permit. It is the purpose of these provisions to delineate restrictions, development standards and siting criteria, and establish removal procedures in order to protect the City from the uncontrolled siting of various utility infrastructure(s). It is further the purpose of these provisions to minimize visual impacts on the community, particularly in and near Residential zones; minimize the impact of aerial and/or above ground facilities and their supporting structures; and preserve the opportunity for continued and growing service to accommodate the growing need and demand from utility providers. The Utility Compliance Permit will be reviewed concurrently with site, building, and encroachment permits.
