Exactly. Mostly is the opposite in reality. Scrap yard is in place for 50 years, but the neighborhood is developed around it. Then the new neighbors complain and want the scrap yard closed.

It only takes one asshole to screw you and your neighborhood. It's not hard to come up with examples where without zoning it's cost advantageous to destroy a neighborhood and everyone else's property values. See the other examples I cited, I think the honeydipper one is an excellent example. How would you like it if your neighbor started running a septic pumping business from his house, parking the trucks there?

Yes, that happens sometimes too. But zoning also protects the business that's already there. It's happened here with a local auto race track. It's in a zone where it's permitted, been there for 50+ years, etc. Some folks are bitching because the noise travels a long way. But they haven't been successful.

OK, I buy a house in a residential area next to your house. I decide to go in the septic tank cleaning business and buy 3 honey dippers. I use my small backyard to park them in. They barely fit, so I back them up, right to the property line, close to your kitchen. Or I decide to go in the car selling business and start putting 10 old used cars out on the front lawn to sell. Happy now?
