POLL RESULTS: Open Space As Priority Wins, Though Narrowly Among Patch Readers
The surprisingly close poll showed that while more of our readers seem to consider open space a municipal priority, many others say recreation is more important.
With the hot-button issue of open space preservation of concern in Barnegat for some time now, we wanted to know, which priority do you, readers, value more -- recreation or open space?
We tried to ask the question in a balanced way, and we allowed eight days for you to respond to it.
While most of the respondents did vote for open space (52 readers, or 46 percent, as of this writing), it was a pretty close one, as far as our polls go, with 44 readers saying recreation was more important to them).
We will keep the poll open for your voting pleasure, to mirror the debate that continues in Barnegat.
Thank you for voting!
