So I was wondering what people thought about their general office relationships with developers.... are people accomodating? Confrontational? Is there good communication? Do people just roll over? Do developers listen and react to your ideas?
Also, if you have concept meetings with developers, how much do you try to influence their projects? Do you talk policy with them, or do you get into the nitty-gritty details?
Finally, how many of you make official recommendations to your commission/supervisors/planning board? We simply "give the facts" without official recommendations, but everyone can guess how that works out..
