   The R-1 Low Density Urban Residential District is established to accommodate single- family residential use along existing streets and to promote single-family residential development (involving the extension of new streets) where sanitary sewer and municipal water are available. The densities are intended to provide for areas of suburban character in the community and to prevent excessive demands on sewerage and water systems, streets, schools and other community facilities.
