Boise's Project Management Program

PDS offers limited project management services for customers whose projects meet specific criteria. A project may consist of a number of permits or approvals, and may involve review by other city departments or outside agencies.

If a project is accepted into the program, a project manager will oversee the project throughout the entire development review process. The project manager assists applicants in understanding the city’s requirements, which enables them to submit complete applications and avoid possible delays. The project manager proactively monitors each project’s progress from Planning approvals to Certificate of Occupancy.

Multi-Discplinary Team

A multi-disciplinary team will be assigned to the project. Team members could include representatives from Current Planning, Design Review, Subdivisions, Plan Review, Fire, Public Works and a multitude of other disciplines. The project manager will select the team based on the scope of the project.

Early Assistance Meetings

Early assistance meetings are offered to identify required applications, establish project timelines and determine if there are any major issues prior to application submittal. One or more early assistance meetings may be held with varying team members. 

Project Manager’s Role

The project manager acts as the central point of contact, opening the lines of communication by bringing an appropriate city team together, and greatly reducing the amount of time applicants spend going from department to department. 

Eligible Projects

Project management is available on a limited basis. Customers who wish to participate must contact a project manager and request consideration. Project managers have the option to decline an otherwise eligible project based on their workload capacity.

Eligible projects may include:

  • Downtown Housing Projects
  • Affordable or Workforce Housing

  • Projects with challenging site issues (such as hillside or floodplain)
  • Complex large projects with difficult schedules or phased permitting
