How do we planners tell what "right" is when they don't let us know until after it's too late??????

That can be a big problem for new planners in departments where policy has traditionally been handed down through oral folklore rather than in writing, especially when there has been no clear precedent set by previous decision-makers.
AMEN!!!! You have no idea what I would pay for the smallest attempt of a record of what was and wasn't enforced and how before my arrival.
