    SmartCode - warrants vs exceptions

    In our SmartCode manual, which seems to be the same in all I've read, a warrant (which meets the intent of the code but doesn't comply) is reviewed by an internal committee and an exception (which does not meet the intent) is reviewed by the Board of Adjustment. The Planning Office determines which ones is required. My question is: Is the BOA the only board/committee that needs to review/approve the request, or should it also be reviewed by our internal committee and if so, should they review it prior to the BOA seeing it?

    I would anticipate the internal committee giving a recommendation to the Board of Adjustment in such an instance.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    That's how I see it too.

    Same here. Same here. (Is the message now long enough?)
