Permitting and Licensing Update

Due to community spread of COVID-19 in our city, City Hall is closed until at least January 15th. Community members can continue to schedule virtual appointments for applications, permits and plan reviews or call (208) 608-7100 for Planning questions and (208) 608-7070 for Building questions. Public Record Requests can be filed online.

Additionally, from November 21, 2020 to January 15, 2021, inspections will only be conducted when and where safety protocols aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19 are followed. Inspectors have the right to reschedule an inspection if they feel a site is not following proper preventative procedures. Similarly, we ask that you reschedule your inspection if you or anyone on your project is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.

Permitting and Licensing System Update

On August 18, the City of Boise replaced PDS Online with a new online Permitting and Licensing system.

Please note that some current records are in the process of migrating to our new system, and are still accessible in PDS Online in view-only mode. This is a one-time update that we expect to be completed by late September.

Thanks for your patience as we continue to work through inevitable implementation refinements.

Haven’t logged in since before the system was officially replaced? Make sure to clear your browser’s cache by pressing the “Shift” and “F5” buttons at the same time (or the “Command,” “Shift” and “R” buttons on a Mac) on the login page for the new Permitting and Licensing System.
