P & Z Haikus


Last night's Planning and Zoning committee meeting chugged on for a good 90 minutes before commissioners began reconsidering the proposed downtown Whole Foods development.

With ample time to mull over conditional use permits and variances—or stare blankly at the majestic Native American-inspired carpeted wall mural jutting up behind the commissioners' heads—we decided to whip out some sexy P&Z haikus to keep things entertaining. Here are a few:

Christmas garland winds
around laptops, name placards.
Commission says, "Aye."

Emotionless tone:
"Motion to reconsider.
Please ignore photos."

We disagree on
vinyl siding and concrete
but it's not over.

A public comment.
Quivering cottonmouth, cane:
"I will miss the pond."
