Shelbyville Planning Director Helen Yang calls the move the obvious choice for the city.

"Let's face it: I'm pretty stupid, our mayor is an idiot, and the vast majority of our residents test at or below a fourth grade level. 'Smart Growth' is ideologically incompatible with our community makeup," she said.

Development in the city will now largely be guided by whim, drunken impulses, and the city's long-held motto: "git 'er done."
