PLOTS & PLOYS
For and Against
Americans would rather have a new nuclear-power plant in their town than a casino or a landfill, according to a new survey of attitudes on local development projects.
That is among the findings in an August telephone survey by the Center for Economic and Civic Opinion at the University of Massachusetts.
The study was commissioned by the Saint Consulting Group, a Hingham, Mass., firm that advises developers on garnering community support for projects. The firm also helps developers scuttle competitors’ projects by assisting community opposition groups, according to Patrick Fox, Saint’s president.
