   1125.01  PURPOSE.
   The purpose of the R-R (Rural Residential District) is to accommodate single-family residential use along existing streets, to preserve the rural character while promoting open space single-family residential development (involving the extension of new streets), and to separate agricultural uses from other more extensive community development within the City.  These areas may or may not be serviced by municipal water and sanitary sewer.
