Whithout exception at every Plan Commission meeting an applicant will say "We have been good corporate citizens" as one of the reasons the PC should approve something. We have had some business owners that are a complete pain in the a** come in and say that with a straight face.
We have some businesses that always step up to the plate with things like sponsoring little league and donating money for festivals, etc. However, some of these businesses are always skirting the zoning and sign ordinance.
How would you define "good corporate citizen?" Is donating money enough or should good corporate citizens also maintain their property, adhere to the sign code, etc?
