Planning Commission drinking game

Edited 18 Sep 08: New additions!

It occurred to me at the last Planning Commission meeting that it would make a great "drinking game.*"

The rules are pretty simple.

Take a drink (or get a point) every time someone uses the following words:

  • upscale
  • pedestrian friendly
  • walking trail
  • visual impact
  • orderly growth
  • entitlements
  • great project
  • environmental impact
  • Any reference to trees, shading, planters, landscaping or color schemes
  • signage
  • build-out

Double points for:

  • negative declaration, (quadruple if it's pronounced "neg dec")
  • staff recommends
  • Sphere of Influence
  • consistent with (general plan or adjacent uses)
  • Any reference to "growth paying its own way."
  • vibrant
  • amenities

* If you review the audio tape of the meeting and end up with alcohol poisoning, don't blame me. I don't recommend trying it unless you have a designated doctor and a gastric lavage apparatus standing by.

  1. Somehow I forgot the development industry uber-jargon term "build out." That's at least a 2 pointer.
