This is a VENT
As you may know I am a planning conslutant I work with many clients for communtiies large and small. May of my projects are standard boiler plate projects as they must follow state guidelines and requirements. As a result it is easy to copy and paste and change the names to protect the inoccent.
Right now I'm doing one of those standard projects. I've done probably 30 of these projects and my current client is a royal PAIN IN THE A micromanageing the entire project, questioning all my data, statistics and sources.
The following are excerpts from a recent memo I got from him
s. Bottom of page 22. I would delete the entire last PP on this page and all the pp’s on page 23. Race and income not meaningful to recreation planning.
t. Page 24. Is the information on Housing and Tenure relevant to Recreation Plan. I would suggest dropping
It is required stupid
Page 40 - Suggest that you reorganize this section
i. I would suggest you insert the 1st pp and chart from page 42 to start the Survey Summary section.
ii. Than follow with your 1st pp that begins with “ XXXX TOwnship property…………
iii. Than insert the Recreation Issue chart
iv. Followed this chart by your conclusion statements “The following opportunities all…………”
v. Followed by “A number of other issues……………..”
vi. Followed by the pp on page 41 “ The survey asked……….. Note this pp needs to be rewritten
vii. Followed by the chart are you willing to pay additional taxes?
viii. The last pp on page 41 does not seem to fit in this section. “The Township maintains few……………..”
Suggest we remove it.
UM this format was fine for my last 29 clients
m. Recreation Areas and Trails Map – We need to be sure we have the latest snowmobile trails shown on this map. If we do not have, lets make a statement on the maps that there are pending updates on snowmobile trails.
Don't you think I checked my facts dummy
A note to all you public planners if you hire a consultant to help you out on a project please don't micro manage.
UGG I need some
