Bribing Neighborhood Associations not Uncommon

It is interesting to see that neighborhood associations sometimes approach developers to arrange payoffs to silence Nimby concerns. It works vice versa as well. I was oblivious to this type of behavior. Here I thought Nimby’s were standing for their “not in my backyard” principles, but I guess even that, in some cases, has its price. Now there is a movement to get neighborhood associations and developers to disclose such deals.
