Branson City Planning's "Grade Card"

During the winter months, I have had occasion to work with the Branson City Planning Department.  It has been my first encounter.  I was apprehensive, in that the few I know who had experience with the Department had warned that their demands were "unbelievable".  I am happy to report that I did not find this so.  Perhaps having experienced the likes of Kansas City and Dallas, my expectations of "beauracacy" was too keen.  What I found was reasonable people, doing reasonable regulatory things to protect the general welfare.  In conclusion, although you might think it self serving, I give them an "A".

PS.  Thanks guys for telling me it was OK to leave the rebar out of the foundation.  Just kidding.
