They are designed to lessen congestion in the streets; to secure safety from fire, panic, and other dangers; to provide adequate light and air; to prevent the overcrowding of land; to avoid undue concentration of population; and to facilitate the adequate prevision of transportation, water, sewerage, schools, parks, and other public requirements. They are made with responsible consideration, among other things, as to the character of each district and it peculiar uses and with a view of conserving the value of buildings and encouraging the most appropriate use of land throughout the municipality.
