Over the years, my focus has broadened, and my perspective has changed. I went to college with someone who only used rice paper umbrellas and wore only cotton shoes, because rice and cotton were less harmful than synthetics. Rice paper, as you might imagine, isn't the best substance to protect someone from the deluge, but he slogged around with this soggy thing over his head as a badge of his commitment to the earth. I don't think it has to be that way.
In my consulting work, I hope to help you focus on what's right about land-use regulation and work through the bureaucratic maze in an effective way. No rice paper umbrellas, but maybe I can work with you to help minimize harm, and move through the process quickly.
