I yield my time to the man who wants to give us a history lesson of how he moved into this neighborhood when it was built back in 1979 and a list of the promises made at that time.

Therefore, I yield my remaining time to this guy with a PhD in English Lit. to school you 30 year current planning vet on "How to Apply the Zoning Code".
College towns are a beyotch! Everyone with a degree in, well, whatever, knows more than you do. I truly feel sorry for Dan or anyone else who works in a place like Davis, CA or Cambridge, MA

I yield my time to the applicant's attorney, so she can have a lengthy debate with the Commission regarding the semantics of 'shall' versus 'must'.

Yeah the sheer fact that they are there means they found out about the hearing in enough time. Btw, this is one of the reasons we post a sign on the property in the petition. However so primitive, signs are one of the most effective forms of notice.

I yield my time to the guy who has just one more thing to say after he's walked away from the podium.

I yield my time to the lady who knows her time is up, but she has just one more thing to say. I can only imagine we all need to hear it.

I yield my time to the guy who wishes to interrogate the applicant directly and refuses to ask his questions through the chair.

Y'all are funny...

We had this happen at a meeting a couple of years back. We had something like 40 members of the public sign up to give comment on an agenda item and each of them would be granted 3 minutes to speak their mind. The first guy got up and before the timer started, he requested a procedural determination and indicated that the other 39 are going to yield their time to him and wanted to know if they could just do it at with one motion or if it had to be rolling... He actually thought he would be able to present for 2 hours in an effort to have a citizen's filibuster to prevent the Council from voting on a rezoning.




The mayor told him that he had 12 minutes and to use it wisely.



I yield my time to Carl Fredricksen. Now get off my lawn.

I yield my time to Mother Earth, as I am blessed for the opportunity I have been given to co-exist among my fellow humans...I think if all of us could just stop, collaborate, and maybe even listen, we would realize what a gift time truly is.

And THAT is why these bike lanes do not belong on my street!

Will you yield your time to the person that won't talk into the microphone at the podium so they can't be heard on the live stream & recording.

I yield my time to the woman who has no knowledge of the program I run but wants to meet with me to tell me how I can do my job better.

Oh we had a big big blowup after one of these.
Hello-conflict of interest anyone? We have our PC members sit out in the hall after they announce they have a conflict of interest. I hammer conflict of interest to my PC member especially during orientation. That will get a case overturned.

I yield my time to Karen who is now bristling with rage because the commission approved a site plan (over her objections) for a convenience store on a property that has been zoned local business for at least 50 years

I yield my time to the people who fought the rezoning that passed and are now fighting the site plan
