Public Works Requirements for Hillside Development 

Prior to starting early assistance, please email the completed questionnaire, geotechnical evaluation if already completed (see Geotechnical Evaluation Guidance and site sketch (if available) to hillsidedrainage@cityofboise.org with the subject "Hillside Preapplication - {address}." Please include any civil engineering or soil assessments if they have been prepared. Public Works will review the submitted materials and return a completed copy of the questionnaire. The completed information will have further direction on how to proceed with permitting and required documentation for the project submittal.

The Hillside Development - Category 2 application reviews for compliance with the Zoning Ordinance, and applies to any developments that meet established thresholds for slope (exceeding 15%) or other adverse conditions associated with these areas, and as defined in Section 11-02-07.3.G(3)(b). These applications are eligible to be reviewed administratively by the Planning Team. This review ensures development of sloped land occurs in a manner consistent with Comprehensive Plan.
