Comparing Neighborhood and Rural Residential

I just added Neighborhood Residential to the zone comparison chart, but how do the new (November) Neighborhood Residential and Rural Residential compare to the prior (July) Rural Residential?

The table below lists all the uses and provides columns for the July Rural Residential and the November Neighborhood and Rural Residential. As you look down, you'll see that the new Neighborhood Residential is occasionally more restrictive than the old Rural Residential, while the new Rural Residential is generally less restrictive than the old Rural Residential.
