New ETA Boundary

On January 1, 2014, a new Extraterritorial Area (ETA) boundary for the City of Bismarck went into effect (map). This new ETA boundary was negotiated between the City and Burleigh County. The City also has a negotiated ETA boundary with Apple Creek Township and Naughton Township and is in the process of negotiating an ETA boundary with Missouri Township. The City of Bismarck continues to have planning, zoning and building inspection authority within the ETA boundary.

In addition, as of January 1, 2014, Burleigh County discontinued its contract for planning and building inspection services with the City of Bismarck. The Burleigh County Building/Planning/Zoning Department can be reached at (701)221-3727.
