Manlius: Zone change approved for Sensis facility

During public comment time, various residents complained about a proposed luxury dog kennel -- Paws at White Cross Farm -- that may end up in their neighborhood on East Seneca Turnpike. Their main concerns included a decrease in property value, noise and drainage/sanitation.

Supervisor Mark Tetley said he would arrange a meeting between the developer and the residents to go over the issues raised.

The daycare and boarding facility would have room for 100 dogs on a 20-acre parcel of land. Amenities would include an indoor, private suite for each dog; large, fenced play yards and a bone-shaped wading pool, according a proposal by Diane Blanchfield, who worked for two years at a similar facility in Charlotte, N.C. where she currently resides.
