Basically there are about half a dozen anti-development squeaky wheels. The same people are interviewed by the media over and over.
I would say that many people in general are not really in favour of new development but they don't spend any effort to fight it or usually even to inform themselves of what is going on. I don't put much stock in the comments like "all buildings should be below the tree canopy!" that appear in the papers, for example.
On balance I think most people want to see the city grow and evolve, or at the very least they want the things that go along with growth
even if they don't understand the economic relationships.
