Q May a county enact a building code applicable only to platted subdivisions and other specified residential and commercial developments in the county?

A The board may enact a county-wide building code with provisions which would only apply to platted subdivisions and other specified developments in the unincorporated areas of the county, if the board determines that the specific regulatory provisions are necessary and reasonable.
