Title: 20 - Zoning

Chapter: 15 - RR-5 Rural Residential District

Section: 10 - IntentPurpose

A. This district classification is designed for the orderly development of rural homesites in the five-acre category, to encourage a suitable environment for family life for those who desire rural residential land.

B.  Since there is a limited area within the county which is suitable for rural residential land, this district is intended to protect rural residential uses against encroachment by other uses which may be in conflict therewith. The provisions of this chapter, therefore, shall be liberally interpreted to apply to rural residential and related services, to the end that no other use shall be permitted and no regulation shall be deemed or construed to interfere with any normal accessory use conducted in conjunction therewith. It is the intention of this chapter to prevent the further subdividing of rural residential land into lot sizes which might threaten the rural quality of areas zoned RR-5 and changes of zone from RR-5 to another classification are to be made only where such uses are in accord with the general plan. Rural Residential-5 shall also encompass those areas where, because of drainage, topography, or other problems, one parcel may have only one building site for every five acres.

C.  The regulations set forth in this chapter shall apply in all RR districts, subject to the provisions of Chapters 20.46 and 20.48 of this code.
