• Provide Building Permits  to Residential and Commercial Builders

The Building Department provides information and building permits to commercial and residential builders in our jurisdiction. This department does not cover the City of McCall, their impact area, or the City of Cascade; the City of Donnelly contracts with Valley County to perform inspections within their city limits.

It is the mission of this office to make the permitting process as easy as possible. All current building codes and ordinances relating to Valley County Building Department are available for viewing at this department. Please refer to the building permit instructions below for additional information about inspections and permitting.

Valley County has adopted the 2012 International Building Code with amendments as per the State of Idaho (download new building code information and amendments as of January 2015.)  The 2012 International Residential Code and the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code are in effect as of January 1, 2015.
