What do they say..."it's better to ask for forgiveness rather than ask for permission"
That's how a lot of "iffy" projects get built around here, they erect it quick and dirty without public debate, permits, etc... then if called on it- they pay small fines (they build a green area/park with a duck pond, walking path, etc) and get the proper permits, etc... after the fact in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost if they had done it by the book.
