A1: "Dewey-Humboldt P&Z stuck on design standards"

Doug Cook turns in a solid report on D-H struggling with building design standards, covering the bases well.

I have to wonder whether D-H officials aren't getting in over their heads. It's good to do the planning at the beginning, before you've got too many masters to serve, but to be effective in this you've got to have a pretty clear consensus on where you want to go. You can't build that consensus in public meetings, it happens over lots of lunches and group huddles, well before the meetings. Wish 'em luck.

I think you will find that every time you hear some sayin small biz will be hurt theres a corporation standing behind them whispering in their ear .Jack hamilton said" I want businesses that will stay here" Thats what we should be lookin for. Bussiness's that are interested in becoming part of a community not just sucking upwhatever money there is to be had and leaving town .
