RISMedia » Are Consumers Sick of Development? Attitudes against Land-Use Development Grow Deeper, Survey Says
My take on this is as follows: Generally, any potential development from something like a cell tower, to a school, or hospital expansion, etc. is frequently met with community resistance. Two "policies" seem to govern this. They are "NIMBY" and "BANANA" - acronyms which stand for... "Nothing in My Back Yard" and "Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything"!! It is a wonder that anything ever gets built!!
