Perhaps, but who knows? It might have to go to a town like Marcellus or to the Minoa area.

No I don't like paying high taxes, but I feel at least I am getting something for them, a nice quiet area free from the rampant development that plagues many areas. I for one am very glad that this was rejected. If I wanted to live in a land of strip malls, I would have stayed on Long Island. I have seen first hand how unrestricted development can ruin a nice area. There are supermarkets in Manlius, Cazenovia and one in Fayetteville. There is no need for another strip mall.

I agree- and am VERY glad that the project wasn't approved. Adding another grocery store to Manlius would be overkill. We have 2 P&Cs and a Wegman's within a 5 minute or so drive, including one right in the village. And WHY build another plaza when we already have an empty one on Seneca Turnpike, newly renovated/remodeled and a new, dressed up parking lot to boot... just waiting to be leased?

Yes- this. Exactly. Property values and employment rates sure don't go UP when grocery store plazas are built nearby and there certainly is no lack of funding for kids' sports around here... so how, exactly, would this plaza have been a good thing for the community?

Well, while they're open anyway... there really isn't a need here for yet.another.grocery.store. And- there's no shortage of people who are more than willing to pay our higher property taxes.

Manlius is not a give-us-growth-at-any-cost sort of community. A grocery store would be a GREAT asset to LaFayette, for example... there's a commercial area to put it with no competition. But here? No.

I know this is an older thread, but thanks so much for your pictures, bellafinzi! We are moving to the area from CT and I'm trying to narrow down the towns before we come up to choose a house. I was set on Fay-Manlius, but I've heard it's 'snobby-ish'. So now I'm considering Camillus and Marcellus. I have 3 kids, one in Elem, one in Middle and one in HS. My daughters play competitive soccer, so a nearby indoor arena is key. A good indoor pool nearby would be great. Friendly, supportive neighbors (although I know that's hit or miss sometimes). Not too much driving for food shopping or schools, or doctors. I work from home, so a nearby Staples would be good. Most importantly a very community oriented town. My husband will be working in Syracuse, Albany and Buffalo so decent access to the highway would be good too. Am I asking for too much??
