Boise River System - Minor

The Boise River is one of our community's most valuable assets. This application is required for all lands and waters and all aquatic, wetland, riparian, and upland environments within the jurisdiction of Boise City that are:

  • Within the 100 year Floodplain boundaries adjacent to the Boise River; or
  • Within the tributary floodplains with associated alluvial fans
  • Within lands and waters classified as A, B and C areas

These lands and waters serve to preserve fish and wildlife, and land use decisions along the river are made based on these habitat classifications. A minor permit is that which does not affect more than 100 lineal feet of river bottom, nor more than 1/2 acre of Class A or B Lands. A River System Permit - Minor may be reviewed administratively by the Planning Team.
