Presently, these ordinances include: subdivision regulations, building permits (which include flood plain regulation), salvage yard permits, and zoning in portions of the unincorporated areas of the county. Staff also administers and enforces the Dilapidated and Abandoned Enforcement Ordinance which authorizes the County Commission to force the clean-up and/or demolition of dilapidated structures in the unincorporated areas of the county.

The Zoning Ordinance for the Zoned Unincorporated Areas of Putnam County regulates land use in portions of the unincorporated areas of the county.
