I work for a rural county that is a bedroom community for a larger metro area. We are trying to maintain a rural character, but we do support and encourage conservation subdivisons in order to preserve open space.
I have had quite a debate with the engineer over the use of curb and gutter on roads that front lots approx. 10,000 sq. ft to ˝ acre. While we may have some of these lots, they are intermixed with some that are 20 acres. I look at this as we need to be consistant, but it doesn't look rural, feel rural and it can't be hap-hazardly done. There has to be a consistancy. Has anyone covered this ground and what course did you take?
