Ok, now everyone on the right side of the room: you get to be be big box retail development consultants.

Everyone on the left, you get to be the Town Council of Hicksville, USA. You have no zoning or site plan review code. They are proposing a 4,000,000 square foot commercial project off a local road with no public water or sewer. And, by the way, it's located on prime agricultural soils. Your comprehensive plan was last updated in 1972.

I now call the public hearing to order!

Planning Council Sergeant at Arms, six time Garden Vista Village Realtor of the Year and former Braniff Airlines Senior Sky-Hostesses, Tammy Vanderhoulfensen delivering the Zoning Hearing Safety Briefing: "...In case of a forced landing at sea your may use your chair cushions as flotation devices. The exits are located there and there. If a plan doesn't meet minimum setback requirements the captain, excuse me, the Chairman will come on the PA system and address those of you sitting in first class, I mean the front row. This hearing serves peanuts. Those of you with a peanut allergy might already be dead by now..."

“ALRIGHT now, I am the resident, what I say goes because I pay my taxes. Now… I have a sign for the Brothel / Petting Zoo business. Each letter is going to be flashing colors and about this big. Any questions?”
