NIMBYism in a Nutshell

In the Jefferson Park neighborhood of Chicago, a developer wants to build a 12 apartment complex on an empty lot. What did one resident have to say about that?

Tina Marie Campbell, who has lived near Montrose and Cicero avenues for more than 25 years, said the area is dense enough, and does not need more rental apartments.

“We’ve got a great neighborhood here,” Campbell said. “I’d like to see it grow and get better.”

“The area is too dense for more apartments…I’d like to see the neighborhood grow.”

WTF; THESE ARE MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE SENTIMENTS
