Zoning Ordinance Amendment

What’s changing?

The proposed changes to the code are minor revisions to existing Zoning Ordinance, found in the Ada County Code (ACC),

to provide clarity to standards and terminology. These revisions focus on:

Definitions (ACC§ 8-1A-1)

Regulations applying to all zones (ACC§ 8-4)

Clarification of the process and standards for:

Conditional Uses (ACC§ 8-5B)

Temporary Uses (ACC§ 8-4L)

Accessory Uses (ACC§ 8-5A)

Specific Use Standards (ACC§ 8-5)

How does this affect me?

The proposed changes will add clarity to the application of the Zoning Ordinance and approval process.

The revisions will help the public, applicants, Ada County staff, the Planning & Zoning Commission and the Board of Ada County Commissioners, as we all use the Zoning Ordinance together.

How can I contribute?

Ada County would like your help in reviewing the proposed revisions

and offering your thoughts on whether the proposed changes

add the clarity we are seeking to provide.


There will be opportunities to share your thoughts at the following events:

Open house – June 12th, at the Ada Community Library/Lake Hazel Branch
10489 W Lake Hazel Rd, Boise, ID from 3:30pm-7:30pm

Public hearing before the Planning & Zoning Commission – September 12th

Public hearing before the Board of Ada County Commissioners – October 2nd
