Guest Bio

In a realm afar, a king of zoning reigned,
His passion, city planning, uncontained.
He shaped his realm with vision and with care,
In zoning’s art, his kingdom’s streets laid bare.

With eco-conscious plans, he led the way,
A master of zoning, night and day.
His subjects thrived in harmony and grace,
In Zoneland’s order, they found their place.

Join our podcast as we journey through,
The world of zoning, tales both old and new.
In rhymes and rhythm, we’ll unfold his lore,
The zoning king, whom legends still adore.
