SUPPORT SMART GROWTH FOR NORTHERN NEVADA,
JOIN THE YES MOVEMENT
Northern Nevada is experiencing record job growth numbers, which requires housing wherever it can be properly planned and developed. New home prices are going through the roof because demand is outpacing supply. An affordable home will be unattainable as the housing shortage turns into a crisis.
Northern Nevada has some of the most stringent planning and construction standards that ensure quality housing and public safety. However, all too often, the application, review, and approval process for these projects are stalled by a very small group of opponents, whose sole purpose is to prevent growth in their backyard, or “NIMBY’s” (Not-In-My-Backyard). Some individuals are virtually against all growth and are proud “CAVE” people (Citizens-Against-Virtually-Everything).
What is the most surprising is that the NIMBY’s have been allowed to hijack the process over and over again. Being heard and giving your opinion is necessary and important feedback to our government officials. Rational dialog is healthy and leads to well made decisions. However, the irrational fear mongering must stop! The county and city government officials work hard to keep the citizens safe and our community prosperous. Northern Nevada cannot keep bowing to a few loud individuals/groups at the expense of the many.
Please get involved immediately and JOIN US as we let our elected officials know that there is substantial support for Smart Growth and responsible housing projects. We must let them know that we will no longer tolerate the vocal irrational NIMBY and CAVE minority voices unduly influencing our elected officials. It's about time that those of us who want to prevent the impending crisis, support quality housing, and promote healthy and prosperous growth in our Northern Nevada communities speak up and be heard.
