Why should we consider a change in residential zoning?

In the 2014 South Kenton survey, 90% (900 people) said they wanted our community to maintain its rural character. Present zoning allows homes to be built on 1-acre lots. This means that a 75-acre tract of land could have close to 50 homes on it. This would be similar to development in a suburban area. South Kenton County Citizen Group wants to know if people are satisfied with 1-acre minimum zoning, or if you would like to see a change in zoning to require policies with lower density in residential housing.
