We are in the process of revising our subdivision regulations. One question that has come up is: we currently have a regulation restricting the length of a block to 1,600 feet or less for rural subdivision and 1,200 feet in length for high density subdivision. One of the planners thinks we should remove the requirement. I think we should retain it.
I am asking the Throbbing Brain for arguments, pro or con, for having block lengths limited in a largely rural county with lots that typically are one acre or greater.
