YIMBY (/ˈyimbē/) noun, informal Definition: A person who supports new development in the area where they live, typically in order to increase the availability of housing. In August 2017, Vail Symposium hosted a two-day, three-session program discussing how to create a healthy community through workforce housing. Fast forward five and a half years and the discussion is still ongoing. Though strides have been made to combat the idea of NIMBYism in the valley, the fact remains that housing is still a critical issue facing our valley. It has become clear that there is no magic bullet and that we can’t build our way out of the housing crisis–there’s not enough land or money–but other communities that are similar in size, demographic and reliance on tourism have begun to make strides.
