Th horse before the cart

Tonight we went to a city planning commission meeting for an open forum concerning a new reception center. I learned a lot about my neighbors- most I was aware of but some behaviors surprised me. What amazed me the most was that even though this “new neighbor” had not moved into the neighborhood, they had managed to annoy everyone around them with just the talk of the reception center. Everyone’s honest concerns of safety, or environmental impact didn’t even faze the would be owners. How could someone with that much opposition be so single minded. 

If it was my business that I was trying to start- first I would have talked to my neighbors about my idea to see if it would have been well received before even taking it to a planning committee.
