Before you roll your eyes, wondering what this has to do with contesting, see 
Question 2 on Page 3:

a. What private land use restrictions on residential antenna installations have 
amateur radio operators encountered?  What information is available regarding 
the prevalence of such restrictions?  What are the effects of unreasonable and 
unnecessary restrictions on the amateur radio community's ability to use the 
Amateur Radio Service?  Specifically, do these restrictions affect the amateur 
radio community’s ability to respond to disasters, severe weather, and other 
threats to lives and property in the United States?  What actions can be taken 
to minimize the effects of these restrictions?

b. What criteria distinguish “unreasonable or unnecessary” private land use 
restrictions from reasonable and necessary restrictions?  How do local 
circumstances, such as neighborhood density or historic significance, affect 
whether a private land use restriction is reasonable or necessary?  How does 
availability of alternative transmitting locations or power sources affect the 
reasonableness of a particular private land use restriction?
