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-Disciplinary 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.
