A Public Hearing was held regarding a planned ‘Cluster Development’ of 21 single family homes on Hoag Lane.  There is significant neighborhood opposition  primarily due to drainage concerns.  This event was attended by Town of Manlius Councilor Candidates Elaine Denton and Heather Waters and current members Sara Bollinger, Rich Rosetti and John Loeffler.
