If you could read the mind...



...of your mayor or town supervisor, what do you think his or her vision of your town would be? Is planning even considered, or is it at all about attracting new investment no matter the cost to the built environment?

With my hands placed on Yer 'Onerr's forehead, this is what I'm reading...

"Where's the deal? Make the deal! Planning, don't break the deal!"

Of course:

"Reelection....Must get reelected"

More specifically:

"Open Space. Only open space has value"

"Large lot suburban single family homes are the only legitimate lifestyle"

Who gives a sh*t about history, tear it ALL down. We NEED this [insert name of big box here] in order to keep our college graduates here in town.

Our appointed county manager: "CYA...CYA..."

Our county commission chairman: "Must approve projects of two best friends. Must make those kickbacks. Must ignore public. Who cares what the press thinks? Oh, by the way, where's my cowboy hat?"
