Those No Good Articulate Young People

For some reason the Traverse City Record-Eagle decided to print two anti-ADU letters in last Sunday's paper. Neither one is very convincing but this letter is priceless - No single-family ADUs by Adrienne Rossi

Advocating for citywide change are... a cadre of articulate young people interested in more rental choices or in adding a rental unit to their own property.

Yep, the last thing any city in Michigan needs is a cadre of articulate young people. Why don't they move to Chicago?

Sigh... what Adrienne fails to mention is that she has a garage with a granny flat but now is trying to prevent others from making the same choice. This is why opponents of ADUs are being called "selfish and guilty of NIMBYism."
