We always recommend that you check with the City Planning & Zoning office at 208-939-0227, but if you are looking after office hours or you want to check for yourself:
Step One: Check the Ada County Assessor’s Website. The Ada County Assessor maintains a land record system that is available online: http://www.adacountyassessor.org/propsys/ This system lets you search by address, parcel number, or subdivision. Once you find the property, look for "Zone Code" to the left of the picture.
Step Two: Once you have the zoning code you need to compare that to the Eagle City Code 8-2-1: Zoning Districts, which can be found online at the following link: https://codelibrary.amlegal.com/codes/eagleid/latest/eagle_id/0-0-0-9902. This section of Eagle City Code will also give you information about permitted uses within the zone and setbacks.
Please Note: The County Assessor’s website is not always up-to-date and the City Planning & Zoning should be contacted for the most accurate information.
Two events must occur before the City accepls an application.
Applicant schedules a meeting with staff to submit materials & fees. The City will create a file. This is the 1st time the City has the application materials.
Staff sends the application to agencies for comment and recommendations. Staff review the application and creates a staff report based on the City Comprehensive Plan and City Code. The staff report is available 5 to 7 days before the hearing.
A minimum of 15-days before hearing a letter is to sent property owners within 300-ft. of the site and notice is published in the newspaper explaining the request, as well as, the date, lime, & location of the hearing. The site is posted 10- days before the hearing.
The applicant and the public share their reasons for approval or denial. The commission’s decision is a recommendation to the City Council. The commission will issue written findings of fact based on the public hearing, comprehensive plan, and City code.
A repeat the public notification process from Step 3 but with City Council hearing date, time & location.
The applicant and the public share their reasons for approval or denial. The City Council can approve, deny, or send back to the P&Z Commission or staff for additional work. The City Council will issue written findings of fact based on the public hearing, comprehensive plan, and City code. Findings are customarily adopted at a separate meeting on the Council’s consent agenda.
