There is a development going in about 1.5 miles from my place along a bike trail I take to work. They removed all the vegetation and literally removed every small hill and variation in the land. They then used some of the soil to even further level it all. The whole area was then compacted by heavy equipment until today it is this huge bare expanse that is completely level. All this so they can plop their cookie cutter homes down on top...
indeed. I don't know what to add, except that... that really sucks. And I feel for you. I would definitely petition or go door to door with your existing actual rural neighbors and go with your concerns to your County. Unfortunately the county is looking to increase it's tax base and is unlikely to go against a new developer who is increasing the 'rural' population. This is not rural development, it is sub-urban. Get that into their heads.

There may already be an easement to the county on the road - this information should be at your county clerk's office. If not, you and your neighbors on the road might want to lawyer up, because it is likely the county is planning to steal land from you all.
Our land extends to the middle of our county road, and there is an easement granted by previous owners, which conveys with the land.
A non-exclusive easement for ingress and egress as delineated on the said survey.
Subject To: This conveyance is subject to covenants, conditions, restrictions and easments, if any, affecting title, which may appear in the public record, including those shown on any recorded plat or survey.

And be amazed as they apologize for the past derision, and beg you for your permaculture wisdom.
