State Land Use Process

Developers must comply with local land use planning requirements in Idaho. Land use planning in Idaho is delegated to cities and counties under Idaho Code 67-75.

Local Land Use Process

Counties and municipalities have the authority to establish zones or zoning districts, and within these districts may establish specific standards for structures (including transmission lines). The process for zoning amendments is consistent across the state. As part of the zoning ordinance, local governments may require special use or conditional use permitting for transmission lines. Specific requirements will vary by local government.
