What has King County forgotten about rural character?

CC 21A.04.060 Rural area zone.
A. The purpose of the rural zone (RA) is to provide for an area-wide long-term rural character and to minimize land use conflicts with nearby agricultural or forest production districts or mineral extraction sites. These purposes are accomplished by, 1. Limiting residential densities and permitted uses to those that are compatible with rural character and nearby resource production districts and sites and are able to be adequately supported by rural service levels.
KCPP FW-9
A fundamental component of the County-wide planning strategy is the maintenance of the traditional character of the Rural Area with its mix of forest, farm, high-quality natural environment, rural cities, unincorporated Rural Centers, and variety of low-density residential uses. The basic elements of this rural character are... G. Rural Economy... The Rural Areas make a unique contribution to King County's economy. In addition to farming, fisheries and forestry, cottage industry shall be recognized as making a significant economic contribution in Rural Areas, and should be encouraged.

Correction

The photograph under the headline "North Bend crash severely injures youth" (Wednesday, Aug. 16, page A6) was digitally altered to obscure the license plate. The individuals involved had not been identified at the time of publication.
The bus schedule for Route 21 published last week on page A14 was incorrect. The corrected route information is on page A14 in this week's edition.
