Okay ... here it is. I think.

After seeing the finished results, I'd like to do something a bit different. Something like ...

R-1 - Boring tract housing
R-2 - Boring tract housing on tiny lots
R-3 - Future slums

C-1 - Chain restaurants
C-2 - Not In My Back Yard

AD/HD - Townhouses ... no, highway commercial ... wait, equestrian residential

You get the idea.

Help me out here ... what would make this shirt design more interesting?

HC - Highway Commercial - auto sprawl

TND - awaiting gentrification

Agriculture - "that poor farmer" except that he is land rich.

P.S. Taking Zoning Legend literally, I would like to nominate my former boss who was never afraid to say "Hell No" which is probably why he is my former boss. Gotta love him.

PUD: Pretty ugly developments
PCD: Planned crappy development

For both of the above development types, it just means "let's circumvent any real zoning ordinances or good planning practices and just put crap here" - at least that is what it meant in the metro area where I last worked.

Hey now, I wasn't just talking about the jurisdiction that we worked for, I was talking about the entire area.
