Random Thought: A 2500′ Tape Measure

400′ Measuring Tape on Amazon.com

Just thinking about the new 2500′ WECS setback rule proposed by the Culver Plan Commission.  How is the Building Commissioner going to measure that?  The longest tape measure that I could find on Amazon.com was 400′.  Looks like Culver will have to invest in a GPS, surveying equipment or a custom made tape.  Russ may need some help stringing out 2500 linear feet of tape to make sure no one violates the rule!  Unintended consequences…  As we often find in my industry, what looks good on paper is sometimes tough to accomplish in the field.
