Outstanding examples of plan policies

Lee Nellis

Ok, this is the last of these threads, at least for now. It should be obvious that I am doing something silly like trying to write a book. I also seek examples of well-written planning policies from rural counties and small towns, especially from counties. My definition of well-written is that the policies are a great deal more specific than the typical Mom and Apple Pie policies found in most rural plans, and that they are well-linked both to a basis in fact and public discussion, and to reasonably specific implementation policies. Do they exist? Your help in tracking them down will be appreciated! There is a publication budget for this book, so those who provide an example I use will actually be able to see it in print sometime next year …
