"NIMBY," an acronym for "not in my back yard," is a word to describe those who oppose developments in their neighborhoods that they view as undesirable. Often, a primary argument is that increased density will negatively impact the values of existing single-family homes. But a report released by the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute at the University of Utah suggests otherwise. Single-family homes in Salt Lake County located within half a mile of new construction apartment units actually saw higher overall price appreciation than houses located farther away. Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson says, "We are going to need to embrace density in our communities, and with that, there’s a responsibility of developers to do it well."
