    Planning "Glossary of Terms" for a municipal website?

    Hey,

    I'm looking to either create or find a document to put on our municipal website that more or less "decodes" planning for the layperson - something that defines terms and jargon that we use all the time but confuse your average person. I've been in conversations with applicants where folks didn't even know what zoning was. Does anyone know of something like this that already exists?

    Very useful but more UK orientated: http://www.sunderland.gov.uk/apps/go...gook/AtoZ.asp?
