TOWN OF MANLIUS (WSYR-TV) UPDATE: Town of Manlius Board denied the current proposal to develop Wellington House.
The board says Laker Development, the developer, can come back with a new proposal at a later date. Representatives from the developer were not in attendance.
“The developer is still free to come back if they have an updated proposal that they feel meets some of the hurdles that are out there,” said John Loeffler, a member of the town board. “We don’t know if they will return or not but our action was on the original proposal.”
Part of a developer’s proposal included options for moving the historic site or taking it down altogether and replacing with a retail space.
Letters from the firm, Laker Development, offering to buy neighbors’ homes surrounding the area sparked the greatest concerns.
NewsChannel 9 has reached out to Laker Development and is yet to hear back.
