Godzilla Named Tokyo Planning Director, Announces Broad Urban Renewal Plan

Legendary gigantic lizard monster Godzilla has been named planning director for the city of Tokyo. Shortly after his appointment, Mr. Zilla revealed his urban renewal program by smashing through buildings and stomping across entire city blocks.

"I'm pleased to accept this appointment," Mr. Zilla said during a brief press conference on the steps of Tokyo City Hall. His acceptance speech included mention of "big plans" for the city, which he hopes to usher into a "new age of hope".

Paraphrasing the infamous New York Public Works Commissioner Robert Moses, Mr. Zilla ended his speech by promising to "get things done". He then swiftly turned and crashed through City Hall before breathing fire onto the nearby central business district.

The following news footage captures Tokyo Planning Director Godzilla readying neighborhoods for renewal, with the help of Assistant Planning Director Kiryu.
