John DuGene: I’m a ‘NIMLY’

Having attended the Oct. 4 City Council public hearing on the proposed co-op ordinance, I noticed many references to “Yes In My Back Yard” YIMBY, and “Not In My Back Yard” NIMBY, regarding positions on nearby co-ops.  As one who opposes co-ops in low-density residential neighborhoods, I propose a more accurate mnemonic: “Not In My Low-density Yard,” better called “NIMLY.” So, I am a “NIMLY” who doesn’t believe it appropriate to have high-density co-ops in a low-density neighborhood. I am not opposed to co-ops, just that there are plenty of more appropriate locations in Boulder for the co-ops to exist.John DuGene
