Anything's a Butte project if you're brave enough.

Do you all not know how "Butte" is pronounced or do you have the ability to hear it incorrectly in your head to force the joke work?

IIRC, submitters can't access the followup tag, so this would be on the admin who green-lit it.

Could be worse... They could have gotten a shiat ton of money, eminent domained a bunch of land, and then left this for the last 6 years:

bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.comView Full Size


Such a weird town... Located almost exactly between Phoenix and Tucson, on the intersection of two interstate highways. Should be a natural for industry. Should... I mean, on the Phoenix side, they discovered an Indian reservation in the way, so the cities couldn't just grow together. But this should still be prime investment space.

Since I was a kid, they've had this boondoggle, a waterbed manufacturing plant (When those were hot), a huge printing facility, at least 2 different Six Flags amusement park plans (3, actually, I think), and a bunch of other shiat. Nothing takes off, for some reason. Hell, they even finally got a Target and Sam's Club. Both closed within 10 years of opening.

Well, maybe Love's see's the writing on the wall.  No matter what, "fossil fuel" type vehicles
are being done away with.
What they SHOULD start opening are "pony express" type places because we know the electrical
grid won't handle the plug in recharging, not to mention the heavy haulers will need something to
replace diesel vehicles.  Time to return to the Flintstone's.

FTA: But they had lost every battle, including on July 21 when the Butte-Silver Bow Zoning Board determined the truck stop was allowed under zoning laws.

Zoning laws rarely take "incompatible adjacent usages" into consideration.  It would be nice if laws did so, such as requiring minimum distances between conflicting uses or creating special zones that can only be a specific zoning type(s).

As example, there is an airport not far from here that prohibits residential zoning within a 3 x 1 mile strip of land.  It is mostly agriculture at the moment, but suburban developments are starting to encroach.  Landowners in the zone receive a small tax break as compensation for the block.

Up in Oregon, one county created a special agriculture district that required minimum parcel sizes and blocked residential zoning because the locals were worried that rich folks would start little 5 acre or smaller "gentlemen farms", with a big house in the middle, only to then biatch about dust and smells from adjacent 100+ acre farms.

I don't have the problem there, because I originally learned it as "your anus". Also "Hay-lee's comet".

There was mention that they were putting a casino in there.

(It was mentioned that residents tried blocking a liquor license, which was needed for the casino)

But having driven that desolate route before, in a tiny rental car, and had country music start bleeding into whatever station was playing 'Highway to Hell', I'd agree that they could use a little something to break up the monotony.

Even if gasoline goes away (which is going to take longer for long-haul trucking), there's still a need for rest stops with showers, food, bathrooms, etc.

Ours passed a 'right to farm' law, that basically says that if you move next to a farm, and that farmer decides to put a bunch of pigs of whatever you don't like right next to your property, you have to suck it up, as they're allowed to do anything permitted on agricultural land, even if that wasn't how it was being used when you built your mansion.

"Please see the paywall written on the wall."

I assume there was some combat going on between the various truckstops, but I can't read it and assume that i should submit to the Buck-ee's overlords invading from Texas.

Actually it wasn't blocked by a rival has station but by the locals that live next to where it was going to be built.  There's literally nothing else off that exit and the locals want to keep it that way.

In the first movie there's a montage of them crossing the country and laughing at various suggestive sounding city/town names.  Butte was one of them.
