If a building or development project is worthy enough to be readily acceptable to the majority of residents, it should not be necessary for a developer to go to great lengths and expense to sell the project. If he has to go to extraordinary effort and expense in an attempt to gain support, it is a given that there is considerable opposition. The problem for the opposition is that it is generally fragmented and underfunded. The developer knows this and tries to take advantage of it. Thus the slick and expensive sales pieces in our boxes the other day.
