Want to Build in Dover?

All forms required for the permitting process can be obtained  through our contract city planners:

Ruen-Yeager & Associates

219 Pine Street, Sandpoint, ID 83864

Phone: (208) 265-4629 (Planning)


The planners will set up a project checklist, fee sheet, and packet of application documents for you. You are welcome to email project information and parcel data to the planners, so they can set up the application packet in advance of your visit.

All applications shall include one electronic .pdf copy of the building plans. 

All applications for dwellings and commercial buildings shall include insulation values, energy efficiency ratings of windows and doors, showing compliance with the adopted energy codes. The applicant may also use “REScheck” or “COMcheck” to provide the City with an energy conservation compliance report.

City staff will route the building permits to DBS electronically. 

Prior to issuance of the building permit, Ruen-Yeager will collect the final fees. Electronically approved plans will be available to the City from DBS.  

A legible copy of the stamped, approved plans must be available at the time of inspection or the inspection cannot be completed. DBS is available by telephone during regular business hours to respond to code-related questions.

The State will conduct all final inspections. Certificates of occupancy and temporary certificates of occupancy will be coordinated with the City of Dover and DBS.
