BUILDING

MISSION
Our MISSION is to protect the public from hazardous conditions related to construction and to increase energy efficiency through education and enforcement of State of Idaho adopted building codes.

The Nampa Building Department strives to provide timely plan review and responsive inspection services within the City of Nampa city limits through the enforcement of State adopted building codes for the health, safety, and welfare of citizens of the community. Permits are required before performing any new construction, building addition, alteration or repair of existing buildings and structures; including all plumbing, electrical, or mechanical work.

Please call us if you have any questions about our permit application process. 

​CONCEPTUAL PLAN REVIEW (CPR)
The City of Nampa offers a unique opportunity for commercial developers, builders, and property owners to meet with our staff from various approval departments to discuss local codes and requirements for their projects at no charge. Meetings are scheduled for Thursday mornings.

CPR meetings provide answers to a wide range of development questions including but not limited to: Planning, Fire, Building and Public Works Department requirements, sewer and water availability and capacities, traffic concerns, Southwest District Health requirements for restaurants, and permitting requirements.

To arrange a CPR meeting for your project, please download the CPR application, then email the application, a site plan and floor plan to Dawna Jenkins @ jenkinsdl@cityofnampa.us.
