The epithet 'NIMBY' is normally derogatory:
Futures Forum: Going BANANAs: planning and NIMBYism
We must remember the iconoclast Ian Nairn:
Futures Forum: Ian Nairn: Outrage at the failures of urban planning
Meanwhile, there are other ways of describing this:
Futures Forum: Are you a SWIMBY? >>> Something Wonderful In My Back Yard >>>>>>>
Futures Forum: BIBMY >>> build something beautiful in my back yard
Futures Forum: BIMBY, not NIMBY: and development in the Sid Valley
Besides, why 'nimby'?
Futures Forum: What motivates nimbyism? Who benefits from land-use classification?
Futures Forum: What motivates nimbyism towards the mining industry?
