COVID-19 UPDATE (updated 10/30/20)
The Planning Department has reduced staffing at City Hall in response to Stage Red. We will have two to three staff members at City Hall each day. The other days we will be working remotely. If we are in the office, we can meet you in person, following social distancing guidelines, to help answer your questions. We encourage you to schedule virtual meetings with us using Zoom software. We can also talk to you on the phone or send you information by email (or mail) to limit face-to-face interactions.
Our Planning Commission meetings are still open to the public at this time, but seating will be limited due to spacing requirements. The meetings will be live on Zoom as well to provide additional opportunities to attend and provide comments. Design Review Commission meetings will take place on Zoom. The Historic Preservation Commission will be meeting on Zoom. Subcommittees may meet in person or on Zoom. Meeting agendas will provide details on how to participate.
For general zoning questions, to find out if your property is in the City of Coeur d’Alene, or to schedule a meeting or inspection, please call us at 208-769-2274 or send an email to email@example.com.
