FROM THIS EPISODE

We've all heard of NIMBYs: people who oppose growth because they don't want their neighborhoods to change. Now, there's a counter-movement forming of people who say the only way to solve the housing crisis in expensive cities is to keep building. They call themselves YIMBYs and held their first conference this summer. Their target: restrictive zoning and strong anti-development measures like the pending Measure LV on November’s ballot in Santa Monica, and the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative on the March 2017 ballot in Los Angeles.
