No more paperwork, everything you need is on your phone, tablet or computer.

Building Permit

Blanding City requires a building permit for all new home construction or if any structural, electrical, plumbing or mechanical changes or additions will be made. Completing a building permit application is the first step in obtaining a permit. Blanding City has a new online process that keeps the builder updated on the review process. If you have not created an account, please do so. Once created, you will be able to attach documents and complete your permit at your convenience. 

Building Inspection Request

We can now complete and comment on inspections in real-time, and email reports, approvals or changes automatically to the builder. Please login to your City Inspect account to view availability on the "schedules' tab, and click the "inspections" tab to request an inspection. Please note that these are for building code inspections only.

Commercial Building Permit

To apply for a commercial building permit, contact Bret Hosler at 435-678-2791; or by email at bhosler@blanding-ut.gov. Bret will contact you to discuss your project. The City will host a pre-development meeting to answer questions and work through potential issues before plans are drawn. Once the project is underway, please create a city inspect account and complete the commercial building permit online. 

Utility Connection Request 

Blanding's Public Works Department provides the city with all of its power, water, natural gas, and sewer needs. If you are planning on connecting to existing services please (i.e. moving into a home or rental) complete the billing application to start an account or have your account switched. If you are building on your property or looking to get new utilities to your property please complete the new utility request application. 

Encroachment Permit

An encroachment permit is required to perform installation of trenching for utility pipelines, cable, conduit, water and sewer lines, landscaping work including fencing, weed and tree removal, planting in the right-of-way, and construction access. Permission to access City property for any of these activities is obtained by the application of an encroachment permit.

Zone Map & Annexation Policy 

This is the official zoning map for Blanding City. You can use this map to identify zoning for property located within Blanding City. Zoning ordinances define land uses in a community, whether they be commercial, residential, industrial, or parks. Zoning benefits the community by establishing design standards for land use within the City. The Annexation Policy is also available to county residents looking to add a property to Blanding City.
