Gaining Community Acceptance of Affordable Housing Projects and Homeless Shelters
"Not In My Back Yard" (NIMBY) is a phenomenon by which residents of a community adopt protectionist attitudes and oppositional tactics to prevent an unwelcome project from developing in their neighbourhood. To investigate this issue, 46 case studies were developed for a variety of projects across Canada, including, amongst others, homeless shelters, supported housing, and transitional and long-term affordable housing. By revealing specific NIMBY issues, each case study provides insight on the strategies that can be used for gaining community acceptance of these projects.
