It's not unlike Edmonton's Municipal Development Plan (The Way We Grow), which didn't receive any media attention either - but is meant to guide the heirarchy of plans below it.
"Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice. Carl Spackler, 1980
