    Cyburbia wins ZiPLeR Award!

    Cyburbia has been awarded a ZiPLeR!

    Dwight Merriam of Robinson & Cole produces every year for the Zoning & Planning Law Report a retrospective of the wacky and weird happenings in land use law. The most recent edition includes the following recognition of this website.

    Cyburbia.org wins this You-May-Not-Be-Able-To-Finance-Or-Sell-It-But-You-Could-Name-It Award for calling our attention to 11 subdivision name generator sites. I went to the first site listed and dutifully clicked on the icon of the house and got this dandy name “Stark Quail Gardens.” Not bad. I hit it again. “Stoned Ditch Shoals.” As a retired Navy Captain and inveterate martini drinker, this one makes me uncomfortable. I then tried the Random Town Name Generator44 and after a few clicks came up with the regal name of Mount Gantrickwater. Now, there’s a town I’d like to call home.(Zoning & Planning Law Report Vol 32/No 1, Page 9
    So . . . who wants to give the acceptance speech?

    Obviously Dan, but i think kanye west would find a way to interrupt it with some gibberish how we as planner are holding back the black man and planetzien is the one that really should have won...

    I nominate:
    Bear Up North for eloquence.
    RJ for hirsuteness.
    Veloise for a fanfare.
