Downzoning, zoning that typically results in the reduction of housing density, allows for more open space in areas where ( little water or services exists).

How do you know little modifies both nouns in or clause?

Thanks

one is count noun (services) and the other is a non-count noun (water)

little can be used only with noun-count nouns (in this case water)

That's true but

when you use an or phrase does the first adjective describe both?

IMHO.......

"Little" is not an adjective here, it is a quantifier. It "quantifies" the nouns associated.

"in areas where little water or food exists"

"in areas where little water or few services exist"

Can you say hot people or services?

Does hot describe both things.

I think services is a non-count noun. I can't verify it in any of the dictionaries that I have at hand though.

"services" is count noun.... "This employment agency offers few services"

"service" is non-count noun... "I get more service at the other restaurant"
