Poll: No Consensus On Solutions For Sprawl

A poll finds that New Jerseyans are concerned about sprawl but can't agree on the solutions.

"New Jerseyans remain extremely concerned about overdevelopment and its effect on traffic and open space, but they are ambivalent about proposed solutions to tackle the problem...A Star-Ledger/Eagleton-Rutgers poll conducted this month found respondents reluctant to accept changes that could worsen the economy, threaten their own ability to move to a house in the country or impinge on the rights of property owners."
