Text Amendments


The Box Elder County Land Use Development and Management Code (Code) was created to promote the health, safety, welfare, and to promote the prosperity, improve the morals, peace and good order, comfort, convenience, and aesthetics of the present and future inhabitants and businesses of Box Elder County.  Occasionally, County Officials or a property owner(s) may feel the Code should be updated, modified, or enhanced to help meet the goals previously stated.  A Text Amendment application is the instrument needed to begin this process.


Upon receipt of the required documentation and any associated fees, the Planning Department will be reviewing your application for adherence to the Box Elder County Land Use Management and Development Code.  During the review process, your application will be placed on the Planning Commission (PC) agenda for their review and recommendation.  Upon the PC’s recommendation, your application will then be placed on the County Commission agenda for final decision.
