How to begin:

  2. Create a username and password for 24/7 access to your permit, make payment, check the permit status, request inspections, and to print the permit and Certificate of Occupancy/Completion (if applicable).

  3. Once the Application is completely filled out, you will be asked to attach any required documentation including, but not limited to:

                         Site layout;
                         Approach location;
                         Recorded Deed to the property;
                         Building plans;
                         Engineering (if applicable);

Be sure to have the parcel number or existing address available.  If you don’t know your parcel number, please reference the County’s GIS Parcel Viewer at: Interactive GIS Mapping (bingham.id.us)

       4.  After your Application is submitted it will be reviewed by the
            Planning & Zoning staff. If criteria and adopted Codes are met, the
            Applicant will be notified via email that they can pay for and print the
            issued permit.

       5.  Inspections can be requested through the same online portal as
            needed. Please keep in mind, after the 2nd re-inspect request an
            additional fee of  $50/hr. will be applied.

       6.   A Certificate of Occupancy or Certificate of Completion will be
             issued after the final inspection has passed. You will have access
             to these documents in the permit software and will be able to print
             them for your file.

Please be aware that starting construction prior to issuance of a building permit will be double the permit fee and failure to request and inspection on a permitted project will be charged additionally, 25% of the permit fee. (Pursuant to IBC 109.4 and Bingham Co. Ordinance 2020-10)

All accessory structures will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit of $100 that will be applied to the permit fee, if approved and permitted.

All commercial projects will be assessed at 25% of the permit fee as a Commercial Plan Review fee.  This plan review fee is non-refundable and will be in addition to the permit fee.  Please have your commercial plans approved by the Fire Marshal prior to submission.
