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?
