Zoning

Boise’s zoning ordinance establishes allowed and prohibited uses for every property in the city, as well as uses that are allowed under specific conditions. It also specifies dimensional standards such as height and setbacks. While the city has 23 unique zoning districts, properties are generally classified as residential, office, commercial and industrial. There are also open land and special purpose zones.
