How many acres are needed to build a new home?

For each zoning area, please refer to the Unified Zoning Ordinance and the Subdivision Control Ordinance.

In Agricultural Limited and Agricultural Intensive, it is required you have at least two buildable acres for a new home or a mobile home.

Other buildable lot sizes apply within city or town limits depending on the zoning district.

The new Subdivision Control Ordinance defines buildable lot as the area outside of right-of-ways, easements and the flood plain. If there is a city sewer available then the flood plain can be included in the buildable acres.
