If you’re planning on building a home in rural Putnam County, starting next year you’ll need more land. The Putnam County Sentinel reports the County Planning Commission has voted to increase the minimum lot size to two acres. The rules only apply to lots plotted outside of existing village corporation limits.
The reason for the change has to do with new regulations from the Ohio EPA. The rules require extra space on property to meet septic tank requirements.
The current rules only require one acre of land to build a structure.
