20.28.010 Purpose.

The rural residential district is intended to provide for low impact land and water uses and activities in areas that are not suitable or desirable for intensive development due to their distance from established utility service areas, existing large lot development or existing rural lifestyles. These areas shall be protected from high density or incompatible development in order to maintain their character and avoid the high public costs associated with utility service for outlying or scattered development. Within the RR-1 district, low density uses, compatible with the character of the district, are encouraged provided they will not require public sewers, water systems or high volume traffic arteries.
