Residents that live on Cumberland Road are trying to be the first to join a "neighborhood conservation district." 81-percent of those who live there signed a petition for a new ordinance that would set restrictions for people moving into the neighborhood.

Some of these restrictions include: a minimum of four trees per acre, a twenty degree pitch roof, homes have to face the street, and you cannot paint your house a florescent color.

Kara Camp is one of the many residents who say the ordinance is made for protection. Camp says, "This is a way to protect our neighborhood and conserve our unique characteristic of the city. Our unique characteristic is the country-like feel."

Tyler City Council hopes to vote on the ordinance in February after a public hearing.
