NIMBY - such a dirty word when it comes to municipal politics. I agree, it can get rather taxing at times when you're trying to accomplish larger goals (nobody wants a methadone clinic in their back yard, but nobody wants junkies on the streets, either). But it shouldn't be used to dismiss people's legitimate concerns. People who live next-door to a proposed project have a lot more at stake than someone living on the other side of town - that needs to count for something when decisions are being made.
