One reason that more isn't done to stop unwanted development is that people may not know what is being planned for the land until they hear the dynamite. By the time they realize that they are strongly opposed to the developers actions, the development has already gained tremendous momentum. The big money machine is in fourth gear and half the hill is already gone before Joe Neighbor even starts to think about how he might effectively combat the problem, and who says that he is going to have any skills, experience, or ability to do so? This type of scenario is reminiscent of the 'shock and awe' military approach - it won't work long term, but sometimes it really isn't meant too.
