Several of our members attended the Manlius Town Board meeting last night, even though the zone change application for the Estabrook Estate / Wellington House was taken off the agenda. As it happened, the Board did vote, and rejected the proposal.

One ACSCNY Board member who attended reports:

“Although the Wellington House was taken off the agenda, many people in attendance wanted to make their opinion known. The board acknowledged the great number of well written letters it received in support of the historic home as well as social media attention gathered. After much discussion, the board did decide, and vote, that the property will not be rezoned from residential to commercial.”

This is not the end of the matter – it should be seen as the beginning of a discussion and planning process the benefits Thomas Thomas the owner of the site – who has cared for it so well for four decades – and the greater community. Stay tuned!
