The book begins with the author giving a brief history of various jobs he had before his career in zoning enforcement. The author explains what zoning is about, and there are examples of various cases he dealt with over the years. Some cases discussed will illustrate human events that occur in zoning enforcement and provide an understanding of how such matters are handled. If you have experienced problems in your neighborhood or community about such issues as home businesses, auto repair and sales, signs along the roadway and on utility poles, or had questions about annoying activities, you can find insight with this book. Zoning is very interesting because it deals with circumstances that people live with in their neighborhood, and it directly affects their everyday lives.
