notice for planning & zoning purposes
In 2018, Idaho's legislature amended Idaho Code 67-6519(4), providing "all irrigation districts, ground water districts, Carey act operating companies, nonprofit irrigation entities, lateral ditch associations and drainage districts" with written notice of any "proposed subdivision or any other site-specific land development applications."
Entities desiring to receive notice must request, in writing, to receive that notice. Notice is not required without a written request from the entity.
If you have further questions regarding the nature and scope of the notice requirement, contact an attorney.
