I researching information the effect of urban expansion on formerly rural areas that would skirt many western cities. These are large properties - 1-2 acres that often used as horse properties or recreational farms. My community is one of these and my city is in a major rezoning effort and I want information that will help preserve the rural nature of the community despite being encircled by subdivisions and Walmarts.

What I am looking for is examples of communities of horse properties that have already long gone through this process and experienced a leap in surrounding property values. Did some of these communities far well or badly and what zoning policy led to these outcomes? I don't expect a lot of detail from your examples, but if you can point to me these communities that where encircled by city back in the 90's and let me know if they are doing well or poorly, and then I can then research their condition and related policy.

I plan to this information to organize my community, in Arizona, around the best possible zoning policy.

Extra info:

My specific concern is the increase in property values pushing the construction of guest houses or even multiple housing on the same 1.25 acre lot, for example and then those properties transitioning to rentals resulting in a decline of the community.

Much Thanks!

Just 1 or 2 acres wouldn't really be much or a "horse property", would it ?

Around here, we consider 1 to 2 acres of pasture and paddock per steed to be the bare minimum to be considered for raising horses.

Suggesting anything smaller than that would be considered a joke.

That is not really my question, but now that you mention it, most lots are above an acre and are somewhere between 1.5 and two full acres, but the zoning allows for one house per acre. The few .8 to 1 acre plots do not have horses. But there is a 3-4 acre parcel that has 8 horses on and a house close needing to be torn down. But most of it is nice property with well cared for animals.

Our zoning allows for one Large animal, or 4 sheep or goats per acre, or some combination therein. Though there are a number of people that have two horses on 1.5 acre lots.

Not sure what this has to do with my question, but thank you for the reply.
