Actually, no. If anything, the NIMBYs turn out in full force to get a good project killed before it can even begin.

That is why a developer should FIRST go to the potential NIMBYs & find some consensus before presenting it officially. If a developer isn't able to find some common ground with NIMBYs then it is his own fault. Local government, as in city & most particularly the neighborhood planning unit is the most democratic of all governing structures in the nation. Any developer has to know that.

That's definitely the pattern.

I think that cities need to follow Charleston's example and say NO to projects that are not appropriate for an area. Government leaders are paranoid that saying "no" will run off developers, and they are not confident in the economy to keep bringing in development. Plans are too often developed and then ignored for the sake of economic development.
