A telling excerpt from the July 2008 issue of Aggregates Manager Industry Magazine:

 

After You Beat Them, Join Them

Don’t view permitting as a one-time public relations endeavor. Those old friends may influence new goals as well.

By Christopher Hopkins

The relief of no longer having to deal with irrational neighborhood opponents and their trumped-up arguments can be one of the most satisfying parts of successfully permitting your quarry or plant and opening for business. You’ll never have to deal with those meddling troublemakers again.

It’s an appealing pipe dream. But sitting back and expecting your vanquished foes to ‘live and let live’ won’t cut it.
