    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I'd put one or two copies in the public library.

    Also, I'd stick that thing up on the city website.

    "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."

    Ask your attorney about filing one with the county clerk. In one state I worked, that made it more "official."

    I second that one.

    I work in the private sector and we recommend to our clients to put them
    at the local university or CC library and
    Clerks office for public viewing

    We generally give our clients 25-50 copies of the complete plan and they generally charge for copies and we also give our clients a copy of each chapter and the entire plan on a CD in Acrobat format.

    That way then can e-mail single sections or the entire plan to someone.

    Generally is we get a request of additional copies they cost between $15 and $50 depending on the size and amount of color pages.

    Council, board members and staff get them, and sometimes executive summary copies are distributed to a larger audience. It is available for viewing at the department, city hall, and library, and available to download from the web site.

    Not sure if you have already included them but I made sure every department head was given a copy I work for a town and I made sure the county planning commission was given a copy. Also, the state department of planning, the local economic develpment commission, any local land preservation or environmental groups, several copies for you office, the local chamber of commerce, housing authority all got a copy.

    I put two copies in the library and a link on our website. We don't have the capability to make a lot of copies so the local copy shop sells them. We don't get any money from it but that's okay. I think ours costs about $45 for the version with color photos and maps. It's just a little cheaper for a version with only color maps.

    Ditto what Cardinal said. However, I usually try to get enough project budget to be able to freely distribute the PUBLIC HEARING DRAFT, especially for very large documents that take time to get through.

    Final documents, anyone other than public officials pays hard costs, no markup.

    We published an Exectuive Summary of our '82 plan, but not the 2000 (after the consultant squeezed every red cent out of us, there just wasn't nay money to do so). I pretty much agree with everybody else.
