Certificate of Compliance
New businesses and relocating businesses are required to first submit a Certificate of Compliance application to the City of Nampa Building Department.

Conceptual Plan Review Meeting
If you are looking at properties in Nampa and are concerned about the property's compliance status; a conceptual plan review meeting may be a good tool for you. A conceptual plan review meeting is a meeting with all departments that may or may not have input on your project. It is a free meeting that is held on Thursday mornings. Please download the Conceptual Plan Review form and return it to the Department of Building Safety to be scheduled for the next conceptual plan review meeting. (Appointments in advance are required).
