I normally convert one of the Polygon layers to Centroid (feature to point) and then run the spatial join.

comment SQL Data: How to draw circles with a radius based on lat/long data in DB
What radius are you inputting? 1 degree is about 69 miles at 37 degrees north. If your geometry is Geographic - lat/long then your units are probably decimal degrees. For a 1 mile Circle you might want .014

comment How do I create random points only within a multi-part polygon and none outside?
Maybe you should increase the Sample size until you have the required Points overlapping your blue study area. Perhaps script this.

comment Get coordinates of Near Tool output
use your Centroid FC for input, define the output, point_x, point_y, near_x, near_y. Seems pretty simple.

can you create fishnet for the entire area, delete cells that do not overlap the Points?

the closest point xy is added to the centroid point table, near_x, near_y. Do you run the Near tool?

what about using a Hatch symbol? You can see the hatch and see thru the feature to another layer.

comment Changing grid interval using ArcPy?
there is no way to to change the grid interval with scripting, that's why I recommended a macro tool, which can change the grid settings for multiple layers.

Create a new .mxd, add your layers and see if the settings are saved between edit sessions.

I would create a table from the csv, populate the null values to zero ...as part of the ETL process. Make it more robust.

comment Excel Tables as Labels or Annotations
In ArcGIS, you can convert a spreadsheet to a Table and display the Table in a layout, or is yours a pie chart? blogs.esri.com/esri/arcgis/2010/01/19/…

comment Does transforming to a new projection, then back, affect data accuracy?
Agree. Also, be aware ArcGIS displays 6 decimal places of a Double datatype by default in the Table View. You can change the properties of the field to display 12 decimal places, in the table view. Geographic xy values are typically 9 decimal places or so, double precision.

comment Is there any way to capture ArcMap Drawing Errors inside of a python script?
I would run Check Geometry on each feature class. You can query the output tables, looking for Null Geometry, Unclosed rings, etc.
