Sept. 23 — Most people still don´t like to live by landfills.
A new survey by the Saint Consulting Group examining land use shows that 76% of respondents say they would oppose a proposed landfill development in their hometown.
Opposition to landfills has topped the Saint Index survey for all six years the company has conducted the research. But opposition has fallen compared to early years of the survey when 82% of those polled in 2006 and 87% of those polled in 2007 opposed landfill development.
This year’s 76% total ticked up from 2010´s mark of 74%, Saint Consulting said.
The annual survey interviews 1,000 adults across the country to track attitudes about development and the politics of land use, according to the company.
Saint Consulting calls itself a global leader in land use political consultancy and says it has experience on more than 1,600 controversial land use permitting projects in 45 states, Canada and the United Kingdom.
Casinos are the second-most opposed type of development, with a 74% opposed to them, Saint Consulting said.
