Quote of the Day: On being a YIMBY

“'The 100 or so higher-income people, who are not going to live in this project if it isn’t built, are going to live somewhere,' she said. 'They will just displace someone somewhere else, because demand doesn’t disappear.'”
~ Sonja Trauss, a San Francisco YIMBY activist (Yes, In My Back Yard), arguing on behalf of a proposed 75-unit development, saying that any new housing built is better than none at all
