Institutional. I think this goes for most Cyburbians. Do I really need to explain?

haha. You funny (but uncannily correct, too!). I guess I could say Recreation but that would be misleading and give the goddesses a bad name. ;-)

I guess I'll go with LDR, Low Density Residential, because I'm short and somewhat of a homebody.

I think Suburban Estates would be good for me. Rural like, yet, in an urban setting.

I would be a special use or zoned for "restaurant/entertainment" district.

Somewhere in the seedy industrial area of town where nobody (city officials) cares if there is loud obnoxious music and an odd crowd at 4:00 am! :-D

Those of you that are married with children have

Use and Development Commitments or Covenants.

Legal non-conforming - I just can't seem to fit in with what the "Man" wants me to be, and I don't intend on changing any time soon. :-D

PUD, just for that feeling that I just don't always fit in with those around me (no offence to you Yankees). ;-)

I'm with you......

You know, to be considered non-conforming, you must have been conforming at one time..otherwise, your just "illegal".. :-}

I'd say I am in a "Holding Zone". Not ready to be developed, but have a vague idea of what should go there, should certain conditions be met.

Special Exception Residential, for my real nice double-wide. I got it on a cement pad and everything!

A junkyard/auto salvage yard, because I'm messy, highly visible and you have to deal with me.

"Antiques and Gift Shops", because of my worn out old knees and the fact that I'm always opening my wallet for Mrs. G and/or the kids ;-)

I am a peak-use power plant. I normally offer a good flow of energy to keep things moving. When the need is there, I can jack up production to ensure smooth operation.

I am also notorious for the emission of noxious gases :p :-D :-C

I would be Downtown Mixed Use... (because it has it all, every night of the week it is the place to be, and it always seems to bring out the craziest in people!)

I think I would be a "body of water". Love to swim, be at the beach, on a boat, cooling off in the water...Yeah...You would find me on a map as a "body of water".

I'd be zoned for a new county jail. That way if the cops show up they will just be taking me home.
