From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

YIMBY is an acronym for Yes In My Back Yard (or in rare occasions WHY In My Backyard), in contrast and opposition to the NIMBY phenomenon. Informal YIMBY coalitions exist in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Stockholm [1], Gothenburg [2], Uppsala [3], Oslo [4], Phoenix, and elsewhere to provide community support for affordable housing or market-rate property development over the objections of NIMBY, BANANA and bureaucratic opponents.

There is also a growing YIMBY movement to encourage the installation of clean energy sources, such as wind turbines, despite the opposition these generally face from NIMBY groups.
