About two-thirds of New York voters think businesses and homes destroyed by Superstorm Sandy should be rebuilt under stricter building codes, according to a new poll released Wednesday.
Quinnipiac University found 65 percent said those who are rebuilding should be held to a new standard to help to prevent damage from future storms, while 23 percent said property owners should be able to rebuild as they were before and 8 percent said they shouldn’t be able to rebuild at all.
“Most New York State voters say there should be tougher building standards,” Maurice Carroll, Quinnipiac pollster, said in a statement. “Voters on Long Island and in New York City, the areas hardest hit, support stricter codes.”
A total of 74 percent of those polled said they are “very concerned” or “somewhat concerned” by climate change, though just 45 percent said they think it is to blame for Sandy.
