Title: 20 - Zoning

Chapter: 17 - Regulations for RR-1 Rural Residential Districts

Section: 5 - IntentPurpose

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

     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 section, 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 section to prevent the further subdividing of rural residential land into lot sizes which might threaten the rural quality of areas zoned RR-1, and changes of zone from RR-1 to another classification are to be made only where such uses are in accord with the general plan.

     The following regulations shall apply in all RR districts, subject to the provisions of Chapters 20.46 and 20.48.
