Duplexes—or two units in one structure—are permitted in all residential zoning districts as long as you have a large enough lot, can meet required setbacks, and can provide at least four off-street parking spaces. You must also meet all building and safety codes. Lot size requirements are based on the underlying zoning; to check whether yours is large enough, please call the Planning and Development Services Department at 208-234-6184.
Setbacks, or the distance between buildings and property lines, differ depending on zoning designation and the type of building. Setbacks range broadly and vary based upon the underlying zoning of your property. To check your setbacks, please call the Planning and Development Services Department at 208-234-6184.
