    Yes. In fact, if you trace the "school" of performance zoning I belong to back to its roots, we started off having no standards in the code, just procedures. All of the standards were in the plan. That didn't play well with the lawyers (even though my co-conspirator in all of that was a lawyer), so we abandoned it, as not being part of the essence of the concept. In consistency doctrine states, there still has to be a clear relationship between the plan and the code, of course, so the plan that is behind the performance standards has to be more detailed than a plan that just revolves around a future land use map.

    "When your zoning ordinances finally come into line with the MasterPlan, it will be time for you to learn about performance standards."




    Thanks.
    Maybe the most any of us can expect of ourselves isn't perfection but progress.

    Is there any point to zoning?

    I mean, other than particularly hazardous and noxious uses, why woudl you want to split up the uses? I thought the idea was to mvoe away from macro-zoning?

    I just assisted a guy complete his zone change application. Part of the conversation went something like this....

    RJ: Please complete the line "current use of property."
    Bubba: What's that mean?
    RJ: What do you have on the property?
    Bubba: My single-wide mobilehome.
    RJ: Then write "residential."
    Bubba: I don't know how to spell that....you write it.
    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.
