Protecting community and environment.
Two things are critical when approving land development projects: Proper development of land and how waste is managed and disposed of. Panhandle Health District has a regulatory responsibility to review all new subdivisions to ensure that the land is suitable for disposing of wastes in order to protect the public’s health and the environment. It is recommended that the developer meet with Environmental Health staff before any site work or surveying has been started. The purpose will be to discuss platting requirements and determine potential limitations. There is a fee associated with review of all subdivisions.
Panhandle Health District provides the following services:
- Administer the Idaho Sanitary Restriction Law (Idaho Code 50-1326) for all subdivisions.
- Re-impose sanitary restrictions on subdivisions where water and sewer systems have been disapproved.
- Attend public meetings related to planning, zoning, and development.
- Provide consultation with developers, real estate agencies, engineers, and public agencies.
- Review of proposed subdivisions.
