Poll results for the New Domino poll don't add much insight, but still deserve scrutiny

Atlantic Yards Report

Reversing course, the developers of the proposed New Domino development in Williamsburg have released the poll (right; click to enlarge) on which they based some recent newspaper advertisements.

(I wrote Nov. 15 about managing partner CPC Resources' unwillingness to release the poll results; to its credit, CPC Resources did provide the results on Nov. 28.)

There's not much new, however. The questions and answers don't add to the unsurprising conclusion that residents in the area around the proposed New Domino site would accept increased density for increased affordable housing.

One thing the poll does prove is that, like Atlantic Yards developer Forest City Ratner, CPC Resources hired a "heavyweight consulting firm" to help "shape public opinion."
